The cost of electricity consists of the electric energy (electricity sales), electricity distribution and the electricity tax. The electricity distributor is always a local network company that transmits the electricity to your home using its network and measures your electricity consumption. According to Finnish legislation, the electricity tax is included in the distribution invoice. Therefore, it is possible that you receive one electricity invoice from Fortum and another from the local network company. The local network charges you for the electricity distribution according to its price list and invoicing periods. For the electricity sales, the student’s invoice total will be 117€ (3 months × €39). When you signed your electricity contract with Fortum, we notified the distributor company of this. Therefore, you don't need to sign a separate electricity distribution contract. It becomes effective automatically once you enter into the contract with us.
If your local network company is Caruna, you will only get one invoice. In this case, Fortum will act as the invoicing company and charge you for the price of your student contract, Caruna's distribution fees, as well as taxes, all in one invoice.
