As explained by Julia Neposedov, we are talking only about the “idea and the topic for discussion”. Moreover, the new measure may apply only to newly constructed homes, and the final decision will be taken not by Rostekhnadzor.
Earlier today it became known that the head of Rostekhnadzor Alexey Aleshin has sent the state Duma Deputy Valery Rashkin letter, in which he proposed to abandon gas in residential buildings. The news, of course, has caused many concerns. However, the press Secretary RTN Julia Neposedov, without denying the fact of sending the letter Rashkin, tried to clarify the position of the Agency.
“We sincerely share the concern about the current situation related to the organization and implementation of activities in the field of maintenance, repair and diagnosis of intra-house and intra gas equipment. she said. – However, we are not talking about a ban on the use of household gas in apartment houses, and about the need for modernising the existing system.
In this modernization you can think, for example, and the transition to staffing of residential houses the corresponding electrical appliances. We do not have the power to exercise monitoring and control over the maintenance and condition of the intrahouse gas equipment. The idea of transition to purely electric plate in the newly constructed houses can be considered as one of the ideas and topics for discussion. Even if such a decision is made, it will not be made by Rostekhnadzor”.
