Market Price Electricity

With a Market Price Electricity contract, you pay the up-to-date market price for electricity. It is definitely recommended if you do not wish to follow price developments on a daily or hourly basis. 


The Market Price Electricity contract rate is made up of the basic charge and price of energy. Your invoice is formed on the basis of the actual Market Price Electricity rate and your use of electricity.




  • Contract: valid until further notice
  • Origin: in accordance with the production mix
  • Price: depends on the development of electricity prices on a monthly basis
  • Who for: those who wish to actively monitor the development of electricity prices


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

- Price determination principle (for example, June 2015): The June price is reported to customers on 15 May. 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 (ENOMJUN) and the electricity price area differential product (SYHELJUN) 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%).

- The monthly price changes are reported on the www.helen.fi/markkinahintasahko page on the 15th of the previous month or the weekday before it. (In this respect, the calculation period of the average values of the closing rates changes accordingly.)
