Standard consumption schedules
Electricity trading in the electricity market is hour-based, which is why electricity consumption is also measured by the hour. If you do not have an hour-based remotely read meter installed in your place of consumption, then your hourly consumption of electricity is calculated from a standard consumption schedule.
What is a standard consumption schedule?
Elektrilevi's standard consumption schedule is designed using the earlier average consumption of residential and small business customers. The average total consumption in every hour within a year in the Elektrilevi network is calculated, and a specific coefficient is assigned to each hour for calculating the consumption for that hour.
How is consumption calculated for every hour using the standard consumption schedule?
How consumption is divided between the daytime and night hours
If you have a two-tariff meter installed, then the electricity consumed during the day time (work days from 7am to 11pm) is divided between the daytime hours of that month and electricity consumed during the night hours (from 11pm to 7am and on weekends) is divided between the night hours of that month.
How is the hourly electricity price set?
Electricity sellers usually calculate the hourly prices using the weighted average exchange price for customers who have not chosen a fixed-price package. The weighted average exchange price reflects how much electricity costs on the Nord Pool Spot power exchange at certain times and how much electricity the customer has actually consumed during those hours or how the electricity has been divided in the standard consumption schedule.
