Transmission grid soon to be in new hands

According to the Swiss Electricity Supply Act that went into force in 2008, the previous owners of the transmission grid have to transfer ownership of the grid to swissgrid, the national grid operator. The 380-kV lines across the Albula and Bernina Pass that Repower owns are a core element in this high-voltage grid both strategically and in terms of capacity. Now that special use privileges for these lines which we installed and put into operation in 2005 will be discontinued and ownership transferred to swissgrid, we will lose a strategic core business that it will only be possible to compensate for in part by the Campocologno-Tirano merchant line.
