Supreme Court rejects ELMŰ appeal

Hungary's Supreme Court upheld a ruling by the Budapest Municipal Court of Appeals prohibiting energy providers from passing the cost of electricity network developments on to clients.

The court said the cost of laying an underground cable may not be passed on to clients as it is undertaken as part of local regulations and not at the request of the clients.

ELMŰ had wanted to charge its clients for laying the cable, but its request was earlier rejected by the Hungarian Electricity Office (MEH). (MTI – Econews)
