New price period for district heat begins, water flow fee will rise
The district heat water flow fee will rise by 7.2% as from 1 October 2018. The average impact of the change in the water flow fee on the total price of district heat is 1.7%.

- For a typical detached home (0,15 m³/h), the price impact is EUR 3.84 per month.
- For a typical terraced home / small apartment block (0,8 m³/h), the price impact is EUR 17.18 per month.
- For a typical larger apartment block (2,8 m³/h), the price impact is EUR 53.03 per month and the apartment-specific price impact is about 66 cents per month.
The district heat energy fee for the autumn period 1 October – 31 December 2018 will be 68,99 e/MWh.
