Damages to electricity networks caused by severe weather conditions do not increase the distribution tariffs, says ACUE

Lately, Romania confronted with extreme, unpredictable meteorological phenomena that have caused major damages, in large areas, to electricity distribution networks.

Most the works necessary to fix the damages caused by such meteorological phenomena are in the investment works category and are included in the investment plans of the distribution operators approved by ANRE and consequently do not lead to increases in the distribution tariffs, says The Federation of Associations of Energy Utility Companies (ACUE).

"The value of the investment programs and the types of works are approved by ANRE, according to the secondary legislation in force, being correlated with consumers' supportability and the technical state of the networks," a press release shows. "The electricity distributors continuously analyse the need for works and for emergency interventions based on the technical state and the age of the equipments and distribution networks and perform the necessary work, verification, maintenance or replacement of the network components."

Last year, the companies represented by ACUE, which are active in the field of electricity transport, distribution and supply and of natural gas distribution and supply, have invested a total amount of about 500 million Euro. The total amount invested by ACUE members during the period 2005-2016 is about 9.8 billion Euro.

Due to severe weather conditions (rain, snow and strong wind) in the south-eastern counties of Romania on April 20, 2017, Electrica had several power grid failures within its group.
