Remote heating

Due to the remote heating system in the Šaleška dolina Valley there is a very small number of individual firing installations which would pollute the lower, terrestrial layer of the atmosphere.   Thermal energy produced in TEŠ is also relatively inexpensive which is favourable for the residents of the municipalities of Velenje and Šoštanj as well as the economy and social infrastructure. The co-production of heat also improves the efficiency of the thermal power plant since losses in the production and distribution of heat are considerably smaller compared to the production and distribution of electricity.
