Frequently asked questions about electricity contract and moving

What to do with a fixed-term contract when moving?

If you already have a fixed-term electricity contract with Fortum, you will get a similar contract for your new home. You can also change to another contract type even if your previous contract was fixed-term

First electricity contract – what should I remember?

When you are about to move, make the electricity contract sufficiently in advance. This ensures that you have electricity when you need it. Fortum will also inform the electricity distributor (your local network company) about your new contract. The distributor company will send you a separate confirmation and charge you according to its price list. If your local network company is Caruna, its charges will also be on Fortum's invoice.

If you have any questions, please contact our House movers’ customer service (Muuttopuhelin). It is available every day.
