Primorye reduces barriers to the construction of power grids

Seaside power engineers now do not need to obtain a permit to build and reconstruct electric grid facilities up to 20 kV. The corresponding amendment is introduced in the regional town-planning legislation and has already entered into force, according to the website of the government.

The exclusion of a construction permit from the list of obligatory negotiation procedures will have a positive effect on the implementation of technological connection to power grids. For grid companies, construction preparation time will be reduced, for consumers, connection to networks will become more accessible and faster.

The Primorsk Territory Administration and the power engineers are consistently carrying out the activities of the RF Government's roadmap “Increasing the availability of energy infrastructure”. Cancellation of approval procedures during the construction of network facilities is one of the stages of its implementation, which made it possible to reduce the number of administrative barriers when performing the technical connection procedure.

Today in Primorye, they are preparing for the implementation of dozens of large projects that cannot be implemented without the construction of new power grid facilities and quick connection to power grids of production sites. The availability of energy infrastructure is one of the indicators of the investment attractiveness of the region.

- In the zone of responsibility of the DRSC, Primorsky Krai is the leader in terms of the number of registered applications for technical connection. As a result of 2013, more than 6,5 thousand applications were submitted to the seaside branch of the company, over 9 months 2014 - more than 4,6 thousand, - says Sergey Chutenko, director of the branch of JSC "DRSK" "Primorsky Electric Networks". - The change in the regional town-planning legislation related to the cancellation of the construction permit, will directly affect almost 99% of the connections made by the branch.

Throughout the territory of the Far Eastern Distribution Company's presence - the Amur and Jewish regions, the Khabarovsk and Primorsky Territories, South Yakutia - the issue of connecting to electric grids is acute, obtaining permits for construction can take from several months to one and a half years. In October 2013, the management of JSC "DRSK" appealed to the governors of five regions with a proposal to initiate the introduction of amendments to the regional laws on urban development. The purpose of the changes is to simplify the process of obtaining permits for the construction of energy infrastructure facilities.

To date, the Republic of SAHA (Yakutia), the Jewish region and the Primorsky Territory have signed a law allowing power engineers to build network facilities without obtaining permission. In the Amur region, the law was approved by the legislature and sent to the governor for signature. In the Khabarovsk Territory the issue remains unresolved.
