Consultations on power supply and energy sales


The energy sales employee does not have the right to access the apartment without the permission of the owner or his relatives. In case of refusal, he can draw up an act of non-admission and, after 10 days, turn off the electricity. In fact, the act of non-admission is a means of intimidation, even if it is signed by two energy sales employees without a subscriber's signature, it does not have a legal entity. strength, the subscriber can always introduce himself, for example, as a tenant. It happens that energy sales workers conduct visits to subscribers with police officers under the guise of checking the passport regime, and so the subscriber provides him with a passport, but again, he can’t let him go beyond the threshold, and you can think of a reason for the inadmissibility.

To stop the supply of electricity immediately, energy distribution has the right, only if there is a threat to human life.

If the meter was found to be faulty due to the fault of the subscriber, the energy sales employee must remove the meter, pack it, seal the packaging and leave it to the subscriber (the meter is inalienable property of the subscriber) for delivery to them for examination, and if the subscriber does not certify this fact with a signature, the meter can be taken off throw or repair in the workshop, to prove that it will become impossible.

The meters installed on the stairwells are the property of the housing and communal services. They are also responsible for their integrity and good condition.

If a subscriber uses electricity that has not been accounted for, he can destroy the device tags indicating their power. If an employee measures their power, it should be noted that almost all heating devices have different modes, both in power and in automatic turn-on time, as well as check whether his device is verified and whether it is possible for them to measure mat.values. If measurements are not made, the subscriber can insist on the minimum power of the current collector or its malfunction.

Unaccounted electricity is recalculated as follows - multiply the power of all light bulbs by the burning time based on a reference from the hydrometeo-aberservatory (on average about 8 hours a day for a year) plus or 600 watts around the clock (if there are no electrical appliances) or the total power of the appliances around the clock (except for heating, their power is added only for the heating period). All during the time from the last check but not more than 3 years.

If the subscriber is nevertheless caught, he can: not sign any documents, not make any inscriptions (explanations) on them, not provide a passport, not approach the counter or the place of violation.

Tip: "How to prepare for the examination"

The counters are usually packed in plastic bags, which the inspectors do not carry with them, but ask you. The counter is packed, the protocol is signed, the inspectors leave ... If you turn the package upside down, you will find a nice seam. (If it is not detected, it means that you did not take care of a suitable package in advance) Carefully, with a blade, cut the package along the bottom line. We take out the counter and put it in order. Stuff it back. Gently seal the bag. There is such a feature - instant action glues like the Japanese "SuperGlue" or "Elephant" are not suitable. It is necessary to glue in small sections of 5-7 cm each. We apply glue of the type "Moment" on both surfaces and let it dry for 15-20 minutes, gently press it and so on until the end. You dress harder + shave + comb your hair and boldly carry it all for examination, supporting the packed counter from the bottom. The expert will check the integrity of the seal on the package, break it, pull out the counter and give the package to you. They do not check the seams of the package. At the end of the entire verification procedure, the expert commission is always (apologizing) indignant: why did these drunken testers remove a perfectly working counter and disturb such a respectable subscriber!
