Heat supply to the Municipality of Sárospatak
Heat and district heating supply to the Municipality of Sárospatak
Under a 25-year agreement signed with Municipality of Sárospatak in October 2007, efficient heat supply systems were installed in 25 of the town’s institutions. Based on an individual needs assessment, the modernisation entailed the replacement of the primary energy supply systems. The infrastructure necessary to regulate and meter heat consumption was also put in place by the Company. Besides modernising the heat supply systems, E-Star Alternative Plc. also renovated and now operates the town`s public lighting system.
The municipality pays a fixed service fee adjusted for annual inflation, and gas and electricity fees that are proportional to the institutions` consumption and that of the public lighting system. E-Star Alternative Plc. rents the boiler room and purchases electricity and water from the Municipality of Sárospatak at predetermined, fixed rates. The return on the investment comes out of the savings achieved through the efficiency gains. E-Star Alternative Plc. performs the public tasks related to heat supply and public lighting through a non-profit company established jointly with the municipality.
