About 100 apartment owners from Chişinău have enjoyed central heating, though having announced the authorities they had switched off the pipe.
Representatives of Termoelectrica power supplier have made the finding after checking up 3,000 flats in Chisinau.
"Major breaches have been traced out. Some apartment were reported as having autonomous heating but they actually were stealing heat from the company," said Veaceslav Eni, Termoelectrica’s manager
The inspectors have also found out that 3,000 cubic meters of hot water had been used illegally. In addition, some dwellers have no-seal counters, while others did not pay for the water they used.
Termoelectrica vows to sue all of them.
