To customers of the old power system in Tallinn

  • You are located in the Central, Old Town, North Tallinn or Kristiine district of Tallinn
  • You use electricity in the old power system of Tallinn
    (3 x 220 V)
  • You are about to transfer to a new power system

What is the old power system in Tallinn (3 x 220 V)?

Some parts of Tallinn are still supplied by the 3 x 220 V power system, also known as the old power system. This low voltage network built in the 1930s–1960s mainly serves the Central, Kristiine, and North Tallinn city districts, and also buildings in the Old Town. We currently only repair breakdowns in this out-of-date system.

Most of the buildings (approx. 1,500) covered by the old system are apartment buildings, and less than one-tenth are private homes. For nearly half of such buildings, Elektrilevi has already built an electricity network with a new voltage system.

For places of consumption where the customer has received notice of the possibility to transfer to the new power system, the customer must connect to the new network within three (3) years.

  • Why transfer to the new power system?

    The new power system has a number of advantages.

  • Who should you connect to the new power system?

    Customers whose houses and apartments are within the new power system network can already connect to the new system. A new connection must be established within three years after receiving notice from us.

  • How much does it cost to switch to the new system?

    Our services for switching to the new power system are free, but the required electrical works inside your house have to be carried out at your own expense.

  • Steps to switching to the new voltage system

    If you live in an apartment building, a joint decision is needed to switch to the new voltage system. In a private home, the owner must make the decision.
