Frequently asked questions about electricity for students

How do I know that my electricity consumption is less than 2,000 kWh?
Chevron down
  • The limit is based on the normal electricity consumption of a person living alone in a studio apartment or other such apartment smaller than 44 m2.
  • If you have adjustable floor heating in the bathroom or if you heat the sauna often, your consumption will probably exceed the limit.
  • If you are moving into a new apartment, would it be possible to ask the previous tenant or real estate agent about the electricity consumption rate?
  • If you already have an electricity contract for your apartment, you can check the consumption rate from your electricity invoice. The monthly consumption should be below 167 kWh.
  • If your actual electricity consumption exceeds the limit, this won't be a problem. We will transfer you to a larger Vakio contract.

If your consumption is more than 2,000 kWh/year, the student discount is also available for the Vakio M, L and XL contracts. Order your contract from our customer service or the House movers’ customer service (Muuttopuhelin) and ask for the student discount

  • Vakio S -> max 2,000 kWh
  • Vakio M -> 2,000 - 3000 kWh
  • Vakio L -> 3,000 - 5,000 kWh
  • Vakio XL -> 5,000 - 8,000 kWh
My friend has a Fortum Home Insurance. Can I have it, too?
Chevron down

Yes, you can! Our Home Insurance is a good match for the Vakio S, M, and L packages. Order it from our customer service or the House movers’ customer service (Muuttopuhelin). It is a good idea to get insurance before moving into a new apartment, because the insurance will cover material damage that occurs during moving.

Can I get the student contract with solar or wind power?

Yes, you can! Changing the source of electricity is available as an additional service in all Fortum electricity contracts.

Why am I getting two invoices?

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.

I have Vakio with the student price. How can check the package size and price?

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.


Electricity contract in Helsinki

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.
