(CIANEWS, Dec 23) During the afternoon and evening of Christmas Eve the electricity consumption of small customers increased by 15 to 25 % compared to comparable days. This increase does not have an impact on the operation of the electricity grid as the overall burden falls thanks to reduced consumption of large customers. This was reported by ČEZ. On New Year’s Eve the increase in demand is not as marked but a drop can be seen during the morning hours of January 1.
