Electricity distribution in Spain is a regulated activity. In this sense, our distribution area covers 31,300 kilometers of network spread over Cantabria, Galicia, Asturias and Castilla y León. In Galicia, mainly in Lugo, we are present under the name of Begasa (Barras Eléctricas Galaico-Asturianas, S.A. Our company, belonging to the EDP Group, serves more than 695,000 users.
The entire Viesgo Distribución network has been awarded ISO certificates, especially the Asset Management certificate – and not just because we were the first Spanish distributor to obtain it, but also because it recognises the efficient management of our assets, proving our commitment to excellence and leadership.
Our commitment to society can be seen through the service quality, measured using TIEPI (unit of measurement indicating the minutes of service interruptions per year), which stands at 37.5 minutes in the Group, one of the most positive points in the history of our company. To keep quality at maximum levels, we are constantly investing in new infrastructures and in grid maintenance, as well as in many different major projects that strengthen our position as a responsible company that is committed to the evolution of the sector.
Viesgo was the first Spanish electricity company to replace all analogue meters for remotely-managed meters, which was implemented two years prior to the term set by law (December 2018), and promotes this new technology that makes the Spanish electricity system both flexible and reliable.
