Demand for technological connection to electric networks mirrors last year’s demand. In 2015 we concluded 30,197 contracts (+25 contracts YoY). Total requests for technological connection filed with the Company decreased slightly on 2014 to amount to 36,134 requests. The amount of executed contracts in 2015 almost equals 2014 figures: we connected 34,429 consumers (34 593 consumers in 2014), though capacity in requests and under concluded contracts sharply fell down: -38% in requests and -52% under concluded contracts, as compared to 2014. Connected capacitance totaled 1,080 MW (+14% YoY). Key trend to be easily outlined is that demand for technological connection to networks in residential development continued to persist. We also see gradual uptick in the connections of small-scale generation facilities to our electric networks.
During the reported period the Company has performed a range of activities, stipulated by the corporate network availability roadmap: automation of in-house business processes, enhancement of access to information for consumers (incl. conduct of public seminars, etc.), improvement of technical solutions and increase of in-house workscope.
