The Swiss Electricity Commission (ElCom) has issued a ruling in the case to determine volume- and tariff-related timing differences between 2011 and 2012 for Swissgrid’s grid usage at grid level 1. The case concerned the examination of the chargeability of Swissgrid's operating and capital costs in the grid usage division. The cumulative financial effects will improve the result of the financial year 2021 by around CHF 2 million.
Since January 2013 ownership of Switzerland's transmission grid has gradually been transferred to Swissgrid. This transfer, required by the Electricity Supply Act, involved a total of more than 17,000 installations with worth over CHF 2,300 million. This represents the biggest and most complex transaction in Switzerland so far that has been stipulated by law.
In 2013, ElCom instigated proceedings with the former transmission system owners and with Swissgrid to determine the volume- and tariff-related timing differences at grid level 1 in 2011 and 2012. ElCom has now issued a ruling in all proceedings. In the context of these proceedings, the capital and operating costs were examined as to their chargeability. The cumulative financial effects will improve Swissgrid's result for financial year 2021 by around CHF 2 million.
