security of power supply. Underground cabling has been seen in many cases basically the only but at the same time very expensive solution to solve this problem. This paper presents that with the help of reserve power solutions it is possible to fulfill the requirements especially in sparsely populated rural areas. The results show the profitability of utilizing reserve power generators instead of investing in the cabled network. In addition, the calculations support the fact that customers should at least consider purchasing own reserve power.
