Polenergia Dystrybucja Sp. z o.o. belonging to Grupa Polenergia SA (‘Polenergia’), the largest Polish private and vertically integrated energy group, signed a long-term financing agreement with ING Bank Śląski SA for implementation of an investment plan worth over PLN 21 million.
  • PLN 21.2 million – the planned investments in the distribution area in the years 2017–2018;
  • PLN 18.3 million – the value of infrastructure loan agreement with ING Bank Śląski SA;
  • a 26-percent increase of Regulatory Asset Base (‘RAB’);
  • a 58-percent planned growth of the number of new customers by 2018

The development strategy of Polenergia in the distribution segment assumes building of an electric power infrastructure that will allow for connection to the grid of more than 6 thousand new customers. Thus, the number of customers will increase at the end of 2018 by as much as 58 percent. The expenses incurred for the purchase and construction of the infrastructure will also increase the Regulatory Asset Base by 26 percent.

The announced development of the distribution area becomes reality, and Polenergia thereby is flexibly and rationally optimizing its business while adapting it to the market situation. Increasing the importance of the distribution segment will enable the company to reach greater diversification and stabilization of its activity. The growth of the number of customers by more than a half means the development of energy sales as well as the ability to offer new products.
