Fires caused by the negligence of irresponsible persons and by the high temperatures that are prevailing in the country, in addition to endangering the residents, are also endangering the electricity supply.

The continuous increase of cases where large areas of forest and plains are being affected by fires is concerning and as a result our customers are left without electricity supply for hours.

These fires are causing significant material damage to KEDS assets. Due to the inaccessible terrain to heavy machinery, our teams are being forced to carry material and other equipment by penetrating on foot, making the job quite challenging.

This is also affecting the time duration of the works. Thus, KEDS appeals to citizens to be careful and not to light fires that endanger the supply of energy to consumers.
