Consumption balance

A balance responsible party's consumption balance is composed of the balance responsible party's total production plan, fixed transactions, and actual consumption.

The balance deviation in the consumption balance arises when there is a difference between the actual consumption and electricity purchases (fixed transactions, production plan), as follows:

If the balance responsible party consumes more electricity than what it has planned to consume, there is a deficit in the consumption balance, and the balance responsible party purchases imbalance power from Fingrid in order to cover the deficit.

Correspondingly, if the balance responsible party consumes less electricity than what it has planned to consume, there is a surplus in the consumption balance, and the balance responsible party sells imbalance power to Fingrid in order to take care of the surplus.

A so-called one-price system is applied to imbalance power in the consumption balance, i.e. the purchase and sales prices of imbalance power are identical.

Imbalance power in the consumption balance is subject to a volume fee.
