Caruna Oy’s and Caruna Espoo Oy’s electricity distribution prices will change starting from 1 September 2024

The Energy Authority supervises the pricing of electricity distribution companies in four-year periods. If a company has a surplus at the end of the period, the surplus is credited to its customers during the next period. The opposite is true if the company is in deficit. Prices will change in Caruna’s two network companies starting 1 September 2024. The prices of both companies take into account the increase in value added tax to 25.5% from 1 September 2024.
