We take care of water supply and handle waste water as well as distribution of electricity and grid connections. We also offer an ecological and local district heating for homes and business real estates.
Renting an apartment?
When you move to Inari or Utsjoki, you need to make your own contract for electricity and water supply with us. The easiest way to this is to contact our customer service online or give us a call.
When contacting us, we will ask you the following information:
- the address of the property you intend to move into
- your Finnish Personal Identity Code
- your id, e.g. passport.
Since we own the power grid, you buy the distribution of electricity from us.
Please notice: in addition to this you also need to purchase the electric energy from a Finnish power supplier of your choosing – for example based on price or the origin of the electricity, there are numerous companies to choose from.
The price of electric energy is also called selling price. The pricing of electric energy is free and the seller of electric energy can use the price structure and level of their choosing in their pricing. Electric energy user chooses the most suitable bidding price for themselves from the bidding prices offered by different companies. The price of electric energy is affected by the prices of fuels used for electricity production, such as the prices of coal and natural gas. The price of emissions permit as well as electricity demand also have an affect on the prices of electric energy.
The prices of electricity can and should be compared. This and asking for bids for an electricity contract can be done in the page of Finnish Energy Authority www.sahkonhinta.fi . Electricity contract can be changed by calling the electricity seller. Inergia and its subcompanies offer the services of transmission of electricity in Northern Lapland.

get a grid connection
In case you need a grid connection, please fill the application.
In the need of a grid connection, please contact Tunturiverkko Oy’s distribution network engineer, Harri Tanhua (harri.tanhua (@) inergia.fi) in good time. The engineer needs the following information for the basis of planning:
- the size of connection for the real estate
- plot plan
- information about the purposed use of the building
- the route for the planned connection cable
- information about extension reservations
After receiving the information, the engineer makes an offer for the grid connection. If the offer is accepted a connection contract between the customer and Tunturiverkko Oy will be made and the customer needs to pay the grid connection payment. The construction of a grid connection starts when the grid connection payment is payed. The construction can take up to 8-12 weeks during spring and summer time depending on work situation and the connection location since the construction of a grid connection can require building a new transformer substation or negotiations about the cable route with the land owners in the area. In detached houses and summerhouses the construction time is typically shorter as new connections are being constructed after the last one is made. The most common size of a circuit breaker in detached or summer houses is 3x25A and the electricity planning should be made by a professional. The sizing of the main circuit breaker is the customer’s responsibility and Tunturiverkko Oy defines the size of the needed connection cable.
The customer can start electricity installations in their plot at the same time. Only contractors who have an electricity qualification are allowed to make electricity installations.
In case the customer or the customer’s contractor needs a worksite electricity center that can be ordered for example from Ellappi Oy.
