The regulatory framework, enforced by the Company to connect consumers to the networks in the service areas, is presented in “References” Appendix(11-20).
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, simplification of access to information for consumers, incl. approval of the program regulating development of the F2F customer services (Customer Service Centers and Units), improvement of on-line services and increase of in-house workscope.
