Runaway Chinese miners increase energy consumption in the Irkutsk region by 2.5 times

The Governor of the Irkutsk Region Igor Kobzev complained to Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak about the underground cryptocurrency miners.
Electricity consumption by the population in 2021in the region will exceed last year's level by 159%. In the past four years, the indicator averaged 5.9 billion kWh, and in the first half of 2021 it amounted to 4.7 billion kWh.

Who understands the topic?
Is the growth in consumption a consequence of the ban on mining in China and the transition of Chinese miners to Russia?
Who produces electricity there in the Irkutsk region?
Irkutskenergo, EN +, RusHydro?
Are we waiting for the tariffs to rise?
