Bern (ots) - The Federal Electricity Commission (ElCom) has recognised a higher value for the distribution grid and has adjusted the figure upwards by around CHF 400 million. Based on this decision, BKW is able to claim higher income for the use of the distribution grid. BKW welcomes this decision, which will enable additional investments in an innovative and future-proof distribution grid.
Based on a Federal Court ruling dated 3 July 2012, ElCom has reviewed the 2010 capital costs for the distribution grid and adjusted the value of the grid upwards by around CHF 400 million. As a result of this decision, BKW is able to claim higher income per year (in the lower double-digit millions range) for use of the distribution grid. In addition, BKW can claim receivables of approximately CHF 120 million.
BKW is committed to an efficient, high-performance and technologically advanced grid infrastructure. The decision by ElCom upholds and preserves the value of the infrastructure, and helps BKW to prepare the distribution grid for the new challenges of the 2050 energy strategy.
