Focusing on the environment

Senza-titolo-2_2.jpgDeveloping the grid does not only mean building new lines in addition to the already existing ones. The new plants and systems allow upgrading measures that include the removal of obsolete parts of the grid (pylons, lines, supports) with obvious positive effects in terms of environmental impact. The removal of parts of the lines, made possible by building new power lines, represents the most significant contribution to environmental respect. In the next 10 years, 1,200 km of old lines are expected to be removed and a total area equal to the Aspromonte park will be freed.
In this respect, the 2010-2014 strategic plan includes the removal of at least 800 km of old lines that has already been planned.
