Opposition rejects Electricity Market Act proposal

Both opposition parties have voiced their opposition to the Government’s proposal for a revised Electricity Market Act, which is currently being considered by the Parliament’s Commerce Committee. According to the Government, the new act would oblige energy companies to enhance the reliability of their grids by imposing time limits on disruptions to electricity supply caused by, for example, snow loads. In addition to the revisions forwarded by the Commerce Committee, the Centre calls for the apportioning of electricity transmission costs. Similarly, the Finns Party views that the current proposal would induce a notable rise in transmission costs in several regions and thereby compel citizens and companies to select their domicile on the basis of the costs.
