Electricity distribution prices
Components of the price
A local electricity distribution company, such as Caruna, always takes care of the distribution of electricity from the generator to the consumer. The electricity distribution price consists of the basic fee for electricity (EUR per month) and a consumption-based component (cents per kWh).
The distribution fees enable us to take care of the distribution of electrical energy from the generator to the electricity user, as well as the construction and maintenance of the electricity network, electricity metering and 24-hour fault response.
The electricity bills issued by electricity distribution companies include the electricity distribution fee and the national rates of electricity tax and value-added tax.
Caruna Oy and Caruna Espoo Oy: two separate electricity distribution companies
Caruna Oy and Caruna Espoo Oy are two separate electricity distribution companies with their own pricing. The pricing of electricity distribution is influenced by local network conditions, among other things.
Most of Caruna Espoo Oy's electricity network is in cities (Espoo, Kauniainen, Kirkkonummi and the center of Joensuu). Urban conditions are generally favourable for electricity distribution because people in cities live closer together, so it is not necessary to build as much electricity network infrastructure per customer. In cities, the electricity network is mostly underground, so it is better protected from weather damage, and there is less need for repairs and maintenance.
A large part of Caruna Oy's network is in rural areas (Western Finland, Central Uusimaa, Western Uusimaa, Southwest Finland, Satakunta, Southern, Central and Northern Ostrobothnia, and Koillismaa). There is significantly more electricity network infrastructure per customer in rural areas. The network is also highly exposed to the elements, which substantially increases the costs of maintenance and repairs.
