The electrification of society, the increase of renewable energy production and electric transportation require a strong and smart electricity network to support Finland's carbon neutrality goals by 2035. In 2020, Caruna carried out long-term work to upgrade its electricity network, taking the increasing future need for electricity into consideration.
In the future, housing companies will be able to deploy shared solar panels even more easily. At the turn of the year, electricity distribution company Caruna will introduce the Solar community service to housing companies located in its network areas, which will enable housing companies and residents to reduce their electricity invoices.
