Companies of the PRE Group, Pražská energetika, a.s. and PREdistribuce, a.s. provide supplies of electricity to customers on the territory of the Capital City of Prague and Roztoky u Prahy. They supply electricity to more than 2,150 large customers and over 720 thousand small and medium customers. Both companies operate 206 km of very high voltage network, more than 3,700 km of high voltage lines and almost 7,700 km of low voltage network. Cable lines form major part of the network. Transformation of procured electricity is carried out in 110/22 kV distribution stations.
The companies of the PRE Group rank among modern companies that are aware of their responsibility to the environment and strive to constantly improve the conditions of its protection.
Measures are continuously adopted as part of the environmental policy essential for preventing new environmental problems. This particularly concerns the exchange of older oil filled transformers for hermetically sealed ones or without an oil tank, so-called dry type transformers. This reduces the risk of contamination of surface and ground waters to a minimum in the event of an accident. When reconstructing overhead lines, special types of brackets are used which prevent a bird from perching and being injured. The overhead lines are transferred to the cable network if possible.
A functional system has been created at the workplaces of the PRE Group for the sorting and collection of dangerous and other waste.
The following commitments to environmental protection have been within the company:
