Eight employees and two special vehicles of Yarenergo worked in the village of Ratkovo for six days.

“Two years ago we helped to cope with the” freezing rain" in Moscow and Tver, this winter the colleagues from Pskovenergo needed our help. The Yaroslavl energy system was not seriously touched by this problem, but working in other regions, we have gained enough experience, if necessary, to meet bad weather conditions prepared," — stressed Vladimir Grigoriev.
