In the name of General Director of IDGC of Centre Dmitry Gudzhoyan a letter of gratitude has been received from Head of the Eletsky municipal district administration of Nikolay Savenkov and Chairman of the Council of Deputies of the Eletsky municipal district election commission Nikolay Burlakov for active participation in the preparation and conduct of the election campaign for the election of President of the Russian Federation on March 4, 2012.

On the single day of voting all structural units of Lipetskenergo worked in the high responsibility operation mode. At 663 polling stations in the service area of Lipetskenergo 60 crews of operational and maintenance personnel were organized to be on duty around the clock. In the case of rapid elimination of the consequences of possible failures each of the 18 Districts of Electric Networks of the branch had back-up sources of supply prepared.

Preliminarily power engineers performed additional testing of electrical installations, supplying electricity to polling stations, inspected primary and backup power supply circuits. Much attention was paid to working out the interaction of the responsible personnel of Lipetskenergo with the authorities. In addition, the population of the region was further informed about the work of the around the clock Direct Power Hot Line at 8800 50 50 115, which provided on the election day additional phone numbers for immediate decision-making on issues related to electricity supply.

The result of these activities was the uninterrupted power supply to the polling stations on the Election Day.
