We will use the network fees set in 2011 to invest around 300 million euros in the power network in three years to achieve our objective of reducing the number of power cuts per household by a fifth. Before now we have mainly distributed our investments between the construction of weather-proof underground and overhead cable lines and new substations and the installation of remote meter reading systems.

Electricity market
The European Union is moving towards an electricity market that promotes competition, ensures that investments are reflected in generation capacities, and allows consumers to choose electricity sellers. When Estonia joined the EU, we were allowed to transfer to the open market in two parts on the condition that the whole market must open in 2013. This means that from 1 January 2013 all electricity consumers will be able to choose and change their electricity seller.
