Today, September 23, Alexander Novak, Minister of Energy of the Russian Federation, led the extended meeting attended by Vyacheslav Bitarov, the Head of the Republic of North Ossetia - Alania, and Pavel Livinskiy, General Director of Rosseti. During this meeting, the Head of the federal energy department appreciated the joint efforts of the Rosseti Group and the Republic of North Ossetia-Alania in implementation of the Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation No. 544 dated April 30, 2018.
He emphasized that any actions should be aimed at improving the quality of life and business environment of the region’s residents, and in this case, the consolidated efforts of business community and the government produce the desired result.
“Modern energy system is a precondition for the social and economic development of any region. That is why it is extremely important to ensure the stability of the financial situation of the energy infrastructure, and this requires a 100% payment for the services of resource supply organizations. In this regard, the Government of the Russian Federation pays close attention to the implementation of the Decree No. 534. Today, positive dynamics are shown in North Ossetia, but much remains to be done, so the joint work of the region and Rosseti Group should be continued. Separately, I note that along with improving the economy of network enterprises and modernizing high-voltage power networks, it is important to pay attention to the development of modern low-voltage networks that enter the homes of the Republic residents. This issue is controlled by the Ministry of Energy,” said Alexander Novak.
