This is one of the key activities under the regional overhaul program.

In 2020, specialists from the Moscow Capital Repair Fund carried out a major overhaul of power supply systems in more than 1.2 thousand houses. Despite the difficult epidemiological situation, the regional overhaul program is being systematically implemented.

Replacement of the power supply system is one of the key activities under the regional overhaul program. These works do not depend on the season and are performed all year round. In 2021, specialists will start working on them immediately after the New Year holidays.

Over a million running meters of cable are required to carry out major repairs a year. Almost a quarter of a million Muscovites live in houses where electricity networks were replaced in 2020.

Overhaul technologies require complete replacement of systems. Specialists lay cable channels, install trays and tighten power cables in them with wiring along the floor panels; install energy-saving lamps equipped with optical-acoustic sensors (the light goes out if there is no one on the stairs); install switches in technical rooms, public places; change floor panels and input-distribution devices. A residual current device is installed at the entrances to the apartments, which automatically interrupts the circuit when power surges occur, and also provides a high level of safety and protects residents from electric shock.

From a beautiful facade to a quiet elevator: what is included in the home renovation programOverhaul program: about 4.5 thousand houses will be repaired in Moscow in 2021-2023

The Moscow overhaul program was approved in 2015. It includes 28 thousand houses, in which it is planned to repair 355 thousand engineering systems and structural elements of buildings, as well as replace 112 thousand elevators.

The long-term program of the City Fund for Capital Repair includes all buildings in the capital, with the exception of those recognized as emergency or ready for demolition, as well as houses with fewer than three apartments. Buildings included in the renovation program cannot be overhauled.
