The main goal of Elektrilevi is to guarantee an electricity network service as reliable as possible, smooth for customers and efficient. “Although the reliability indicators of the electricity network have improved year by year, we surely still have a lot to do, so that we could meet the expectations of our customers. Especially in regard of making the electricity network more weatherproof and smart,” said Jaanus Tiisvend, the Chairman of the Board. “When until now we have paid a lot of attention to replacing regular aerial lines with weatherproof ones, then the biggest challenge in the near future will be the renewal and automation of the cable network in Estonian towns,” added Tiisvend.
