Empresa Distribuidora y Comercializadora Norte S.A. was incorporated on July 21, 1992. The Company is an electricity distributor in Argentina. It distributes electricity on an exclusive basis to the northwestern zone of the greater Buenos Aires metropolitan area and the northern portion of the City of Buenos Aires, comprising an area of 4,637 square kilometers, with a population of approximately seven million people. It serves two markets: the regulated market, which is comprised of users who are unable to purchase their electricity requirements directly through the wholesale electricity market, and the unregulated market, which is comprised of large users that purchase their electricity requirements directly from generators in the wholesale electricity market. The Company's transmission and subtransmisson system (HV System) is composed of the 220kV and 132kV head sub-stations: Casanova, Matanza, Ramos Mejía, Morón, Agronomía, Puerto Nuevo, Nuevo Puerto, Malaver, Colegiales, Edison, Matheu, Talar and Zappalorto. This HV System, together with the Edesur and Edelap systems, forms the Greater Buenos Aires (GBA) system. The GBA system is operated by the Sociedad Anónima Centro de Movimiento de Energía (SACME), of which Edenor and Edesur own 50% of the shares. SACME is responsible for the management of regional high-voltage distribution in the greater Buenos Aires metropolitan area, coordinating, controlling and supervising the operation of the generation, transmission and sub-transmission network in the City of Buenos Aires and the greater Buenos Aires metropolitan areas, including coordination with Sistema Interconectado Nacional (the National Network System or NIS) in the Edenor and Edesur concession areas. SACME also represents its shareholders in the control of distribution for those concession areas. The Company distributes energy from the sub-stations of high/medium voltage through the primary 13.2kV and 33kV system to a secondary 380/220 V low-voltage system. Its distribution network, consisting of several transformers, power lines and substations, distributes the electricity to final users with varied voltages depending on the requirements of end users. As of December 31, 2008, the Company served 2,537,527 customers. It operates in a highly regulated environment.
