Farm Power by Oulun Energia Ltd. is a local energy from Finnish small-scale producers. Farm Power electricity is generated using micro and small scale generating plants used principally for generating electricity for the producers’ own needs. When generation capacity exceeds the producer’s own demand, electricity is sold to the grid. Farm Power is the winner of annual Climate Award, Ilmastoteko, in 2014.

Producers of Farm Power electricity are committed to the use of renewable sources of energy, such as wood, hydro, wind and solar power. External experts certify the metering, calculation and tracking procedures used in the production of Farm Power.

Annual net metering of the Farm Power allows producers to utilise their full production capacities and provides a possibility purchase the produced surplus back later on. Farm Power differs from other energy products as every producer can set the price of electricity they generate to the grid.

Farm Power is a concept supporting the market access of micro- and small-scale renewable energy. Market access paths of RE and energy storage technologies are investigated in detail in the GREBE project.
