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.
