Jang Seong-Hyun (Voluntary Activist)

 

Lately, a grandmother and her grandson died from a fire in Goheung, Jeollanam-do. The fire was caused by a candle used in the house where the electricity was cut off due to overdue payments.

 

  In winter 2005, there was also an incident that a middle school girl died while sleeping with the candles alight in her house where the electricity had been shut off. Although the concept of Energy Basic Human Rights, which considers the energy as basic human rights instead of a commodity, has been introduced after this incident, the incidents caused by the candles lighted up for heating are happening every winter.

 


 

  Therefore, the Center for Freedom of Information (CFOI) requested information about the current state on electricity supply restriction in winter.

 

1. Procedure of electricity supply suspension in case of nonpayment

- Please include the timing of sending an electricity supply suspension notice in case of nonpayment, the timing of conducting the power supply suspension in case of nonpayment etc.

 

2. The current state on power supply suspension as a consequence of nonpayment

- Please include the number of households with power supply suspension per month and per local government etc

- Applicable Period: November 2010, December 2010, January 2011, February 2011, November 2011, December 2011, January 2012, February 2012, November 2012 (As of 23rd For November 2012)


  The main point of the information CFOI requested was the number of household per local government and per month that has restricted supplies of electricity. But the information provided by the Korea Electric Power Corporation is considerably insufficient. It was hard to accurately understand the restricted electricity supply per region since the number of cases of installing current limiters per year stated in the provided information also includes the already removed current limiters. With this information, it was impossible to understand if the number of household with restricted electricity supplies increased along with the increase in electricity charges or if the number of household with restricted electricity supplies in comparatively colder regions has some differences with that of other regions. We think that more concrete information has to be provided in order to understand the number of household with restricted electricity supplies.

 

 


 

  The Korea Electric Power Corporation is currently supplying limited electricity (220W) instead of shutting down electricity supplies for the household that did not pay electric charges. They also stopped installing current limiters in extremely cold or hot periods. Furthermore, considering the heating in winter, they decided to supply 660W between November and March in the future. Even though they increased the supply three times more, the amount of electricity that can actually be used for heating will be smaller than the Korea Electric Power Corporation think since the previously provided 220W (2 fluorescent lights, a 25 inch TV and a 150ℓ refrigerator available at the same time) does not include an electricity rice cooker or a washing machine etc., which are necessary in living. The Korea Electric Power Corporation should increase the current supply of 220W to a more realistic level and contemplate plans to increase supplies in comparatively colder regions in winter through cooperation with the local governments rather than uniformly supplying 660W.

 

The attached file is the entire information provided by Korea Electric Power Corporation.
