In the first week of October, Caruna will analyse the condition of the electricity network at night in various parts of Espoo
In the first week of October, beginning Monday 4 October, you may see Caruna's vans on the move at night in various parts of Espoo. The vans carry a device that monitors Caruna's low-voltage electricity network and indicates any network faults it detects.

Electricity solutions for specific needs: Cultivation with grow lighting in greenhouses uses a lot of electricity for the needs of growing
In Finland, the growing season is naturally short, but by using grow lighting, Finnish crops can be produced year round. Lighting that provides strength to growth is the biggest electricity user in a greenhouse, and annual usage can easily reach tens of thousands of megawatt hours. Electricity for the Juntti market garden will soon be delivered via their own Caruna primary substation
