How to get electricity at home

To get electricity at home, you need to have contracts with two companies: one with the electricity network operator who owns the grid where you live and transports the electricity to your home, and one with an electricity supplier that sells the electricity to you. You cannot choose which network operator to use, but you do have a free choice of electricity supplier.

How to get electricity at home

Make an active choice – it’s well worth it

If you don’t sign an electricity contract with an electricity supplier, you will receive a special contract known as an “Anvisningsavtal”(designated contract), which is almost always significantly more expensive. So it’s usually worthwhile making an active choice. Contact us and we will be happy to help you!
