Since the beginning of the year the company has been able to reduce the debt level to 38 million rubles, as at 25 October 2016 it was 603.8 million rubles.
To return the debt Kurskenergo implements a set of measures of both administrative and legal nature.

At the suggestion of the power company defaulters are regularly heard at meetings of specialized committees of the regional administration and district commissions for emergency situations, and then the timing and form of debt repayment schedules are set for them. Debtor are prescribed to send information about their execution to the public utilities and energy committee of the Kursk region.
With large defaulters the branch concludes an agreement on a debt restructuring procedure, which ultimately also contributes to the normalization of payments and reduction of the debt.
