The SBB wanted to gild their electricity. Their goal was to resell the traction current, which they mostly produce themselves, at twice the price. Consequence: The vast majority of train journeys and freight transport would have become more expensive. The federal government has pulled the emergency brake.

Currently, the SBB under boss Vincent Ducrot (60) can sell the traction current for 10.5 centimes per kilowatt hour to other railways. As Blick knows, they would have liked to snag 20.5 centimes. The SBB confirm that in August they asked for an increase of ten centimes for the next two years.
