Electricity for all, regardless of the conditions

The cold frosty days of winter have increased the load on the electricity distribution network and caused problems, especially abroad. Even in Finland, our society's operational capacity is dependent on the functioning of the electricity network. Electricity is needed more than ever as our society becomes electrified. Is there enough capacity, and what is security of supply? Can Texas happen with us?

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.

Weather-proof development ensures our customers daily lives run smoothly

Storm Mauri in 1982 has stayed in my mind: I was outdoors walking with a friend of mine when suddenly huge trees started falling down around us. The situation was frightening and it felt like the wind would take us with it. After Mauri, there have been many other storms, and in my work, I am still vigilant when storms strike. Do customers get help quickly in fault situations and how well are we able to meet customer expectations in a crisis?

Safety is a team effort

An old Finnish saying goes: "There's one for every train". Some continue the saying: "... and some are left at the station". Sayings are always sayings, but there is wisdom behind them. We at Caruna agree that everyone is different. Nobody is, however, left at the station. Everyone is equally valuable.

Cabling has been done and the power is still off – what on earth!

As winter never really arrived in southern Finland, this caused many kinds of strange things. Normally, we have not had the kinds of storms that we have now had during three weekends in February – or at least those who have been working in electricity distribution for a long time do not remember that there would have been. Electricity was cut off, and sometimes the fault repair took a long time. Why?
