The Axpo distribution grid

Electricity grids are the lifelines of modern society. They bring electricity from power plants to consumers. The route to the customers goes through the transmission and distribution grids. Axpo maintains its own grid infrastructure in Switzerland and uses its distribution grids to connect the transmission grid of the national grid company Swissgrid with the distribution grids of its customers.

With its networks, Axpo supplies electricity to the entire part of northeastern Switzerland, the Principality of Liechtenstein and parts of the cantons of Schwyz, Zug, Grisons and Valais. The area with three million inhabitants and a prospering economy covers a third of Switzerland. Up to 3200 MW of power is supplied to customers. Axpo's supra-regional distribution network extends over some 2200 km.
