Electricity utility companies in Ukraine resort to power cuts to keep the national grids operational. Lviv will also have its share of unscheduled power cuts, the local utility company, Lvivoblenerho, warns.
The cuts will be unscheduled as the national grid capacity varies throughout the day.
Because of the cut-offs and the resulting drops and rises in voltage some people say their household electric gadgets have been damaged.
To be on the safe side, Lvivoblenerho, a local utility company, has advised its clients to avoid using elevators and disconnect their gadgets at night.
Hospitals must have their alternative stand-by electricity generators.
