Electricity distribution in Finland

Unlike the electricity energy company that you can freely choose, the electricity distribution company is always your local provider that sends you its own separate bill. For example, if you are looking for an electricity contract in Helsinki, your electricity distribution company will automatically be the distribution company in Helsinki. Only if your local distribution company is Caruna (for example in Espoo), will you get one invoice instead of two as Fortum's customer. 

Electricity distribution is paid according to the transmission tariffs of the local distribution company. These companies make sure that electricity is available at all times and possible power cuts are dealt with promptly.

If you are moving to Helsinki or already live there, you can freely choose any electricity company. However, the electricity that Fortum sells to it's clients is produced always carbondioxide free, which helps to fight against climate change. Fortum is also a reliable company, that encourages it's clients to consume electricity in a sustainable way. 

Most people in Helsinki live in apartment buildings with district heating and hot water. This means that electricity bill will be moderate. However, you can save money and the envieronment with smart choices.
