Grid Connection Fees

Fingrid levies a fixed connection fee for new connections to the main grid. The fixed connection fees are based on the average costs borne by Fingrid due to corresponding connections at the voltage level in question. The connection fees are adjusted annually on the basis of the actual construction costs of the grid.

Connection to an existing 110 kV substation

If a new substation is built for a connection in the transmission grid, the customer bears the full construction costs of the substation.​

Connection to a 110 kV power transmission line

If additional transformer of a maximum of 25 MVA is added to the same power line connection, the customer pays a connection fee of 0.5 million euros for it. In case, the electricity transmission in the main grid caused by the substation does not exceed 25 MVA, a connection fee is not charged from the customer.​​​

Winter weekday 900 hrs, December - February at 7 am - 9 pm
The consumption fee is paid for the transmission of the electric energy beyond the connection point located between the customer and Fingrid. The fee is charged both for the winter periods and for other times.
The fee for output and input from the main grid are charged based on the amount of the energy transferred through a connection point.
The power plants directly or indirectly connected to the customer network (exceeding 1 MW net electricity power) pay a generation capacity fee for power plants.
The energy fee for short operating times is charged for the net production insted of the generation capacity fee in case there is an agreement on a power plant for short operating times.
The reactive power fee is charged based on the monthly highest hourly reactive power transmitted through the customer's metering point. Only the part of the reactive power exceeding the reactive power limits of the individual metering point is charged. Also each month, the 50 highest values are omitted from billing altogether.
The reactive energy fee is charged based on the reactive energy, which exceeds the reactive power limits, transmitted through the customer's metering point. The 50 highest hourly values are omitted from billing each month.

The unit prices are confirmed annually in October.
