Partial problems with the work of the Estlink 2 should last till mid-October. In the past, it has been said that the smaller capacity might increase the price of electricity in Estonia when the power consumption increases.
"Estonian and Finnish prices have in September differed in only in four hours out of 528 hours, so we can say that the Estlink 2 restriction has not affected the prices in essence," said Elering Communications Specialist Kätlin Klemmer. ■
