What is an electricity certificate?

Electricity certificates are a means of promoting electricity produced from renewable sources, like the sun, wind, water. A defined share of all electricity you consume as a customer must be electricity from renewable sources. This is called the customer’s quote duty. The electricity trading businesses must report this quote to Energimyndigheten (the Swedish Energy Agency).

An example: A producer with a wind turbine power plant can sell the electricity produced, as well as the electricity certificate and the guarantees of origin. All electricity trading businesses are obliged to buy electricity certificates to cover the quote duty of their customers, and they must report this to the Swedish Energy Agency.

I’ve been charged an exit fee by my previous electricity supplier. What to do?

An exit fee is a fee you might be charged if you have changed electricity supplier before the end date of your old contract. The terms of your old contract regulate the length of your contract and may specify the notification period. If you terminate the contract before the end of the contract date or outside the notification period, you will be charged a fee. Do this: Contact your new electricity supplier. Cancel your new agreement until the old one has expired. Once an old contract or period of notice has come to an end, you can change electricity supplier without risking an extra fee.

Why do the hourly values ​​differ from you and from my electricity trader?

We report our values per hour for electricity networks in something called “normal time” around the year. These values are also sent to the electricity supplier that our customers have chosen. Some electricity suppliers make adjustments for daylight saving time during the summer. Then the hourly values will be shifted by one hour, when you compare our report and the report of the electricity supplier. Other electricity suppliers do not adjust for daylight saving time, so they will have the same hourly values as we do during summertime.
