Composition of the price of Fixed-term Valtti Electricity

The price of the Fixed-term Valtti Electricity contract consists of the basic component, impact of usage, and a monthly basic charge.

The price of the basic component is determined based on the price on the day of the contract's signing, and it remains the same throughout the entire fixed-term contract period.

The impact of usage reduces or increases the size of the basic component depending on whether you use electricity during low or high price periods.

If most of your electricity consumption occurs during the hours of the day when the electricity price is higher than the average, the price of the basic component will increase by the amount of realized impact of usage. Conversely, if you shift your electricity consumption for hours when the electricity price is lower than the average, the price of the basic component will decrease by the amount of realized impact of usage.

By managing your electricity consumption, you can impact the amount of your electricity bill by utilizing the hours of the day and night when the price is lower.

The fixed monthly basic charge of the Fixed-term Valtti Electricity contract is not dependent on the amount of your electricity consumption.

Neutral hours: no major impact on the price

The impact of usage is formed when the hourly prices of your electricity consumption are compared to the monthly average price of electricity on the electricity exchange. Electricity usage that is timed to low-price hours compared to the average price reduces your energy cost, while electricity usage timed to higher-priced hours raises your energy cost.

The impact of usage increases or decreases your monthly energy cost, depending on the timing of your electricity usage during the past month. Typically, the amount of the impact of usage per month is between -2.00 and +2.00 c/kWh, which means that the monthly electricity energy price increases or decreases by the amount of the realized the impact of usage.

Higher price (c/kWh):  reduce usage during these hours

Neutral hours (c/kWh): no major impact on the price

The impact of usage means comparing the hourly prices of your consumption to the monthly average price of electricity in the power exchange. The calculation formula used is (A-B) / E = c/kWh, which gives the impact of usage for the month in question.

A = Your hourly electricity usage (kWh) is multiplied by the hourly price of exchange electricity (c/kWh), after which the products of all hours are added up. As the electricity consumption of different hours and the hourly price of exchange electricity vary to a great extent, the impact of every hour will be taken into account with this calculation formula.

B = Your electricity usage over the whole month (kWh) is multiplied by the monthly average price of exchange electricity (c/kWh). This gives the value for your electricity usage if it complies with the monthly average price of exchange electricity.

E = Your electricity usage over the whole month (kWh)

When figure B is deducted from figure A, you will get the view of how you have consumed electricity in relation to the monthly average price in the power exchange. The figure obtained is divided by the electricity usage of the whole month, which gives you the impact of usage for the past month (+/- c/kWh).

The final figure is either negative, in which case the amount of your electricity bill will be decreased, or positive, in which case it will increase the amount of your electricity bill. The more you are able to shift usage to the lower-priced hours of the month, the greater the saving you will make in view of the monthly average.

Please note, that in this electricity contract the invoiced price of electric energy cannot be negative.
