Interconnector could cost Enemalta its monopoly, former manager warns

Enemalta could lose its monopoly on electricity supply because of the  interconnector with Sicily, former Enemalta manager John Pace has warned.

Writing in The Times today, he says that the interconnector with Sicily could persuade the European Commission to lift a derogation granted in 2006 which granted Enemalta a monopoly on electricity supply.

In all other EU countries, consumers can choose from whom to buy their electricity.

“The justification for this derogation was that Malta is a small isolated system and less than five per cent of the annual electricity consumption is obtained through interconnections with other systems,” Mr Pace observed.
