An increasing number of consumers and companies are becoming interested in acquiring their own solar power or other microgeneration system. In the region of Kymenlaakson Sähköverkko, about 50 customers have been connected to the network, and Kymenlaakson Sähkö purchases the electricity that is surplus to their own consumption from about half of these customers (figures from the end of 2015).  

The equipment to connect microgeneration to the network has to meet certain standards and recommendations. Their installation also requires expertise. The network company must also be contacted well in advance because the production equipment must not be connected to the network without the company’s permission.

In matters related to microgeneration, please call us at 05 77 801 or email pientuotanto@ksoy.fi (advice on microgeneration, electricity purchase contracts) or the connection sales of Kymenlaakson Sähköverkko, tel. 05 7780 510, email liittymamyynti@ksoy.fi (connecting microgeneration to the network).

User experience of a property-specific solar power system 

We acquired our own 10-kilowatt solar power system in autumn 2013. A 10-kilowatt installation consisting of 40 solar panels was built at the Elimäki offices. The system is estimated to produce 8,000–9,000 kWh per year, which corresponds to the electricity consumption of about four one-bedroom flats. Our own system will provide us with valuable experience, which we will also utilise in our customer services. Learn about the monitoring data of the 10 kW solar power system of Kymenlaakson Sähkö>
