We asked Ploieti City Hall how tenants can disconnect to install their apartment’s switchboard? What an answer I got

In the context that the hot water crisis has already lasted for a month and a half, many residents of Ploiti have taken into account the disconnection from the central heating system for the installation of apartment heating stations.

Since August 1, more than 130 thousand tenants of apartments connected to the heating system have been left without hot water.

Perhaps many of them are afraid that according to the “hot water” model they can be left without heating in the winter, they asked us under what conditions they can be disconnected from the heating system.

On August 30, the Observatorul Prahovean editorial office submitted the following request to Ploiești City Hall:
