Market Price Electricity – market-priced electricity for a monthly price

The price of a Market Price Electricity is made up of the basic charge and the energy fee.

The price of energy is determined according to the average closing price of the monthly products on the Nasdaq OMX Commodities power exchange for each month (such as, e.g. 15 April – 14 May), as well as on the basis of your electricity consumption, added by the margin per kWh and value added tax valid at any given time. ​

Nasdaq OMX Commodities power exchange trades in the longer term, i.e. the price of electricity is fixed to future periods. Read more about the Nasdaq OMX Commodities power exchange:​

The basic charge of the electricity contract is a fixed monthly fee that is not dependent on the amount of electricity consumption. You can check the effective basic charge in your contract details, which is found in our Oma Helen service.

Price determination in further detail

  • The monthly energy cost for the Market Price Electricity product is determined by the quotations from the Nasdaq Commodities power exchange.

The price is determined on the basis of the closing rate of the month’s products for June during the period 15 April – 14 May, as well as the margin. The average value of the closing rates of the system price product (ENOAFUTBLMJUN) and the electricity price area differential product (SYHELAFUTBLMJUN) are added up, and the value added tax and margin valid at the time are added to the total (0.56 c/kWh, incl. VAT 24%).
