Construction of new distribution systems using RIGHT POWER a.s.'s resources

When new buildings are under construction, it is essential to build an entire distribution system in order for these buildings to operate. The distribution system is comprised of a high-voltage (HV) connection, a transformer station, low-voltage (LV) connections and electrical meters for each individual customer. Such buildings include those purposed for business, manufacturing, processing, sales, sports, culture, and other purposes, as well as industrial zones and parks, business centres and other buildings and compounds.

The construction of the aforementioned distribution system is the responsibility of the investor in the buildings or compounds in question. The average cost of this investment ranges from €80,000 to €250,000, and significantly more for more demanding projects.

RIGHT POWER a.s. builds these distribution systems for all investors without using their funds. Instead, the distribution system is constructed for the investor using RIGHT POWER a.s.’s own funds.

RIGHT POWER a.s. provides the following:

  • Preparation of measurement in the distribution system area
  • Project documentation processing
  • Obtaining a building permit
  • Arrangement of a connection to the regional distribution system
  • Individual construction of the distribution system itself (HV and LV connections, transformer stations and electricity meters)
  • Putting the distribution system into operation, and its connection to the regional distribution system
  • Final approval of the above-mentioned distribution systems

RIGHT POWER a.s. will return the aforementioned investment in the form of:

  • Operation of the municipal distribution system
  • In the form of a lease
  • In the form of repayments
