There is a quite an interesting point in the latest Ukro regime calls.
They are trying to lower the general power consumption.
I will tell you the case from my own experience.
It is valid considering the urbanization level and HDI factors we generally shared with the Ukraine (not Ukropistan), and some nuances can be hard to get by the fellow members who live in less urbanized areas.
We had a hell of a hurricane once, a year ago. Nothing serious in general, really minor human losses.
But the influence to the living standard was mindblowing.
For example, the destruction of a power grid caused a kill of the sewage system to work.
An effect was, that after +/-24h, shit was flowing out of toilets - literally.
As I was driving along a route, everything was a dead blackout. In 50 km route, there was ONE household with lights on - they had some generator or something.
The most energy-consuming is to guarantee work of water supply, sewage system, and trash treatment.
Those are the factors along with a direct gas/heat/power supply nobody thinks about - so clear it is to have it cared of that we forget the matter.
The higher building is - the more energy is to be spent on supplying it with those.
Sorry t be in a Captain Obvious mode, but I do take into consideration, that some of us are living on the other side of a planet - literally.
If you have your own water supply, heating is not needed due to the weather, water is hot because the Sun did that in a tank you have on the roof, you can't get the picture. Your life is different, as easy as that.
Waste treatment is important enough, that Italian mafia that took it as a part of activities was able to put on knees Italian govt a while ago, forcing them to negotiate a bribe - openly speaking
