What is a Power Plant Share?

A Power Plant Share enables the production of solar energy easily without having to invest in your own solar power plant. The solar panels in the Power Plant Share package produce 100% renewable solar electricity that can compensate the amount of electricity purchased by your company. Solar electricity is invoiced as part of the electricity consumed. You will only pay for the solar energy produced by the Power Plant Share without any other costs, such as rent. If the power plant does not produce electricity, there are no costs to you. You will also receive a lobby display service for monitoring the power plant’s production in real time. The Power Plant Share can be combined with any electricity contract provided by Helen.

Why is it worth getting a Power Plant Share?

  • An effortless responsibility deed. The Power Plant Share is an easy climate deed for companies that want to utilise 100% renewable energy.
  • No equipment purchases, no requirements for the property. You don’t need to own a property or worry about the property being suitable for a solar power plant.
  • Benefits of a centralised power plant. A centralised power plant guarantees disturbance-free, efficient production for a solar power plant.

What kind of situations is the Power Plant Share suitable for?

  1. Achieving sustainability targets
    A Power Plant Share helps to achieve the strategic sustainability targets set by your company, for example, in relation to renewable energy production or emissions reduction.
  2. No right of ownership to the property
    You company’s premises are not owned by the company, and the property owner is not interested in acquiring a solar power plant. With the Power Plant Share, you can acquire solar power without your own equipment purchases.
  3. Fragmented property stock or otherwise challenging installation conditions
    Instead of implementing several small solar power plants in multiple properties of different companies, the Power Plant Share can help to achieve the same capacity in a single location.
  4. Challenges related to building technology
    In Finland, an estimated 25% of properties are not suitable for a solar power plant purely due to shortcomings in the load capacity of the roof. There may also be obstacles for the installation of solar panels, for example, due to regulations related to the façade or overshadowing neighbouring properties.

Where is the solar farm located?

The Power Plant Shares are located in Helen’s solar farm in Nurmijärvi, with a total of some 2,800 two-sided solar panels. The average annual production of the entire solar farm corresponds to, e.g. about 18,072,289 jugs of coffee or 10,000,000 kilometres driven by an electric vehicle.

With a Power Plant Share, you will utilise solar energy in your company’s electricity use, reduce your company’s emissions and take part in the production of domestic renewable energy. In addition to solar energy, you are able to take advantage of the sustainability image of our solar farm.

You only pay for the solar power produced by the Power Plant Share. If the panels do not produce electricity, for example, during overcast weather in the winter, there are no fees or other expenses.

First, the amount of production by the Power Plant Share is deducted from your company’s consumption invoice by multiplying the production amount by the price of your electricity contract. This means that the share of production with the Power Plant Share has first been deducted from your invoice. After the reimbursement, the same amount of production according to the Power Plant Share is charged on the invoice according to the contract price of your Power Plant Share package.

An example: Electricity consumption for a period of one month has been 1,000 kWh and the Power Plant Share has produced 300 kWh. This means that 700 kWh is charged with the price of the electricity contract and 300 kWh with the contract price of the Power Plant Share.

The extra cost of a Power Plant Share is the difference of the price of the electricity (c/kWh) and the contract price of the Power Plant Share (c/kWh). For example, if the price of the electricity contract is 15c/kWh and the contract price of the Power Plant Share is 17.96c/kWh, the extra cost of the Power Plant Share is 2.96c/kWh per kilowatt-hour (17.96c/kWh – 15c/kWh).

According to the above example, the estimated annual production of a Power Plant Share with ten solar panels is about 5.13 MWh, in which case the estimated extra cost per month is about €12–20.

The size of the Power Plant Share package should be chosen according to your company’s electricity consumption.

Generated solar electricity is metered in the property where the solar power plant is located. With the metered production amount, we calculate the share of the production of every customer who has acquired a Power Plant Share, and this amount of production is charged on the invoice. An equal amount of solar electricity is reserved for our customers as is produced. Physically, solar electricity is consumed in the closest consumption point to the solar power plant.

If the sun is not shining and the solar panels of your Power Plant Share do not produce electricity, there will be nothing to pay. In the Power Plant Share, you only pay for actual production. If you want, for example, wind power in addition to the Power Plant Share, you can acquire domestic wind power with Helen’s wind power for businesses.

It is not possible by law to deduct electricity produced outside the property of the company from the distribution fees. Therefore, a Power Plant Share will not reduce the company’s need for distributed electricity and the electricity distribution fees remain unchanged. As an investment, the Power Plant Share is not as profitable as acquiring your own solar power plant, but it enables the production of domestic energy if the company is not able to acquire its own solar power plant.

Currently, we offer Power Plant Share only to business customers.

As a consumer customer, you can start producing renewable energy with Designated Panels.

We are committed to building more solar power for as long as there is demand for it.
