The Extraordinary General Meeting of Helen Ltd decided on the composition of the Board of Directors and on the acquisition of the business operations of Helsingin Energia public utility. Helsingin Energia’s current business operations (excluding outdoor lighting) will transfer to Helen Ltd on 1 January 2015.
Helsinki is doing well in an international electricity price comparison. Both the sales and the distribution prices in the city are very competitive.
As from 1 January 2015, the Helsingin Energia public utility will become Helen Ltd. The company’s operations and services will remain unchanged, and no action is required on the customers' part. The change is based on the City of Helsinki’s decision to incorporate the Helsingin Energia public utility.
The Finnish Steel Structure Association has awarded its Steel Structure of the Year prize for 2014 to the Viikinmäki 110-kV landscape portal constructed by Helen Sähköverkko Oy. The award-winning steel structure is deemed to be excellent proof that it is possible to build beautiful infrastructure.
Helsingin Energia and Vapo have agreed on wood pellet deliveries to the Salmisaari and Hanasaari combined heat and power (CHP) plants. The delivery amounts are significant on the Finnish scale. Pellets are used for replacing imported coal.
Helen Sähköverkko Ltd is reducing electricity distribution prices by an average of ten per cents as from 1 January 2015. The previous reduction in distribution prices took place in January this year.
Helen Sähköverkko Oy is building a 110/20 kV underground electricity substation in Ilmala. The new substation will support electricity distribution in the nearby areas and improve the security of electricity supply with the growing number of residents in the area.
The price of district heat energy in Helsinki remains highly competitive. During the beginning winter season, district heat will be even more favourably priced than before.
Helsingin Energia has continued to receive concerned messages from it customers, who have been targets of electricity sales calls citing e.g. ‘collaboration with Helsingin Energia’. This is a case of misleading marketing and spreading incorrect information. The customers say that the phone calls they have felt to be misleading have mostly come from Suomen Energiayhtiö.
Helsingin Energia is the first energy company in Finland to offer a demand response service for electricity to businesses and communities. Users of the service receive compensation for allowing the power to be cut from electric equipment of their choice in fault situations. This way, they act as a disturbance reserve for Finland’s power grid. A corresponding pilot project with households has also been launched.
