Production balance

The production balance is composed of a balance responsible party's total production plan and actual production.
The production balance covers power plant generators with a nominal power of 1 MVA or higher. Generators of under 1 MVA are deemed to be part of the consumption balance, and they are handled in the consumption balance so that they reduce consumption. At a balance responsible party's request, production of under 1 MVA can also be handled in the production balance.

A balance deviation in the production balance arises when there is a difference between the actual production and the production plan, as follows:
If the balance responsible party produces less electricity than what it has planned to produce, in other words the actual production volume is smaller than the total production plan, there is a deficit in the production balance, and the balance responsible party purchases imbalance power from Fingrid in order to cover the deficit.

Correspondingly, if the balance responsible party produces more electricity than what it has planned to produce, in other words the actual production volume is greater than the total production plan, there is a surplus in the production balance, and the balance responsible party sells imbalance power to Fingrid in order to take care of the surplus.

A so-called two-price system is applied to the balance deviation in the production balance, i.e. separate prices are calculated for the purchase and sales price of imbalance power.

Imbalance power in the production balance is not subject to a volume fee.
