What you should know about electric power supply when entering a grid rental contract.
For electric power supply you will need two agreements
- An agreement with your local grid owner (TrønderEnergi Nett AS). You will recive a letter in wich we confirm that you now have entered into an agreement with us regarding transmission of electricity.
- An agreement with an electricity supplier. You are free to choose from the list of electricity suppliers enclosed. We must inform you that if you have not chosen a supplier, TrønderEnergi Nett AS is obliged to deliver your electricity - Leveringsplikt. This type of delivery (electricity supplied under statutory duty) is normally more expensive than electricity purchased from an ordinary electricity supplier. If you already have an agreement with an electricity supplier, please disregard this notification.
If you do not have an agreement with an energy supplier, the grid owner will initially supply you with electricity, "Leveringsplikt". This is regarded as temporary until you make your choice of electricity supplier.
Current prices for supply from network operator:
This type of supply is normally a more expensive option. For the first six weeks, the cost is the market price (spot) + a premium of 6,25 øre/kWh incl. VAT. If you do not choose an electricity supplier within six weeks, the premium will increase to 25 øre/kWh incl. VAT.
If you enter into an agreement with an electricity supplier within 30 days after initiating your network connection with TrønderEnergi Nett AS, this agreement will cancel the temporary supply from the network operator.
