Spot prices - electricity adjusted to the market
If you choose our spot product, your electricity price will vary and follow the electricity market. Market prices can fluctuate significantly during the year and even depending on the hour of the day. If you are able to control your own electricity consumption, you can direct your most intense energy consumption to the cheaper hours of the day, and thereby affect the total of your energy bill. Customers who buy electricity at a fixed price, pay the same price regardless of the time of day.
What factors affect the electricity price?
As electricity is a commodity that is bought and sold on the market, its price is directed by supply and demand. Factors that affect the electricity price are, e.g., the weather, water conditions, disturbances in the production or distribution of electricity, and relevant events in world politics.
How is my electricity price determined?
The electricity price is based on Nord Pool’s hourly rate for the Finnish market, which varies on an hourly basis. Electricity prices also contain value-added tax as well as a margin, which is multiplied with your energy consumption per hour.
What if I regret my decision?
No worries! You are welcome to switch to another of our electricity products if you like. Switching to another product is free of charge once a year. The new price comes into effect 14 days after we have received your notification.
