Shopping around for best electricity price
The Electricity Market Act opened the Finnish electricity market for competition. All electricity users can now purchase their power from any electricity provider.
The price of electricity consists of two separate items: electricity transmission service and electric power. The shopping around applies to the share of electric power. Electricity transmission service means a charge for the transfer of electricity, i.e. its transmission to your home. The transmission service is always handled by the local electricity company and its price is fixed.
