A network service is the service of electricity delivery and the service of transmitting electricity produced by the electricity producer through the network to the point of consumption.
Network service - electricity transmission
Network service means being ready to transmit electricity and maintain the infrastructure needed for it, in order to ensure the use of the network service at all times. The price of the network service will cover the costs necessary for maintaining, renewing and developing the network service and its parts.
How is the network fee calculated?
The optimum way to transmit electricity is to have only one network operator in every area to avoid the costs of building overlapping networks. As the market for the network service is therefore not competitive, the costs of network operators and the price of their services are regulated. When the costs incurred by network operators change, they apply to the Competition Authority for approval of a new price.
What does the network fee consist of?
The price of the network service (i.e. the network fee) covers the expenses of maintaining and updating the electricity network, such as building a new network, equipment maintenance and repair, clearing of line corridors, maintenance of equipment used to measure consumption, building and maintenance of information systems essential to the management and functioning of the electricity network, etc.
How have network bills changed over time?
The price of the network service has been distinguished in electricity costs since 2005. A comparison with the service price increase of the CPI shows that in the last 10 years the network service price has become 11% cheaper. We work hard to provide the network service in the most efficient manner and to keep the costs and fees at a reasonable level.
