According to the company, it is difficult to connect smaller or remote areas and villages to the network, and capacity is quickly exhausted. For example, in Komořany in the Vyškov region, half of the village will connect without any problems, the other will try in vain. “The system is connected from several places, but the capacity of the network is exhausted in some parts,” explained Libor Kolář, head of development at EG.D.

This is also why this year the company, which takes care of power lines in southern Moravia and southern Bohemia, plans to invest more than seven billion crowns in strengthening the network. In a longer-term plan until 2030, it wants to almost triple the number of substations it currently operates in the southern part of the republic.

Households thus try to store excess electricity from solar panels at home. “The number of battery storage facilities increased last year,” said Pavel Čada from EG.D.

The company therefore responded to the current boom in domestic photovoltaics last year by publishing the so-called connectivity map. On it, everyone can find out whether and what power the household can connect to the network.

“The map is improved by the application. In it, the user can search for consumption points, check the value of the connection and enter the power they would like to realize,” Kolář added.
