Electricity network operator and supplier
We are an electricity network operator with more than 120 years of experience. We deliver electricity home to our customers through our own electricity network, located in the city center of Örnsköldsvik, that we continuously maintain to secure a stable stream of electricity all the way home to you. If you are in the process of building a new facility, we are in charge of connecting it to our network. We at Övik Energi can also help you find the best suitable solution for you regarding electricity supply. If you don’t choose an electricity supplier of your own, you will automatically get a designated contract, where the price is more expensive. It should be easy to find the right form of electricity agreement, and here you can choose between both a fixed and a variable electricity price - whatever fits you the best. All the electricity we sell is 100 % renewable.

It’s affordable, and it basically runs itself - it just works!
