Implementation of all these ideas by 45% to exceed the maximum demand of the Crimea into electrical energy. The head of energy development Fund Sergey Pikin believes that next year, when the Crimea will be possible to obtain 800 Megawatts for the energy bridge, the Peninsula will become much freer in the choice of where to purchase electricity.
