Power quotas

Power quotas mean that large consumers save electricity to such an extent that supply and demand are again in equilibrium. For a certain period of time, consumers are only supplied with a portion of the quantity they normally demand. They must then take appropriate measures to reduce their power consumption by themselves. Quotas are based on past consumption during a reference period.

OSTRAL is responsible for implementing this measure.
