Changes in Sadales tīkls tariff structure require that absolutely all users must pay a fixed monthly fee for ensuring the connection. The fee for the distribution system services tariffs is not affected by the selected product of the electricity trader or the type of payment.
If the agreement enters into force or is terminated in the middle of the payment period (not on the 1st day of the month), the fixed connection fee is calculated in proportion to the number of days in which the agreement is in force.
A fixed connection fee is the fee for ensuring the connection, the fee for the current value of the installed input circuit breaker (ICB) or the fee for the permitted power (according to the tariff or the tariff plan).
The fixed connection fee must be paid while there is a contractual relationship between the customer and the electricity trader, including for the objects where the electricity supply has been suspended.
The fixed connection fee is intended for ensuring the connection and it does not depend on electricity consumption. In the event of faults or incidents at electrical installations, Sadales tīkls acts promptly to ensure the fastest possible restoration of the electricity supply. If the electricity supply is not restored within the time limit set forth in regulations, users have the right to request the reimbursement of the fixed connection fee for the given period. In accordance with Section 93 of Cabinet Regulations No. 50 – Regulations Regarding the Trade and Use of Electricity (available in Latvian), in the case of accident or damage of the electrical installations of the system operator, the system operator shall register damages and ensure rectification of the damage as quickly as possible (not longer than within 24 hours).
You can temporarily abandon the use of electricity without a time limit, but the fixed connection fee will be charged while there is a contractual relationship between the customer and the electricity trader. Temporary disconnection of electricity is a paid service according to Sadales tīkls price list. To apply for the service, log in to the customer portal e-st.lv, select the section Submit an application -> Other services and fill in the Application for temporary suspension of the electricity supply.

Instantaneous data reading is only available to some business customers.

Instantaneous data reading helps you to determine if the connection power of the electrical network at the object is used in an optimum way. This service is available to business customers if the meter installed at the object provides instantaneous data reading. You can check if there is an opportunity to read instantaneous data at your object by logging in to the customer portal e-st.lv. Select the section Consumptions and readings and go to the subsection Online readings (if you have this section available, this means that your object is equipped with a meter that reads instantaneous data).
The mandatory procurement is a support mechanism set by the state for electricity producers generating electricity in cogeneration plants or from renewable energy sources. The administration of the mandatory procurement of electricity is provided by the public trader whose duties have been fulfilled by Enerģijas publiskais tirgotājs AS since 1st of April 2014. The mandatory procurement costs are covered by all end users of electricity in the form of mandatory procurement components (MPC) payments. The size of the MPC is approved by the Public Utilities Commission. Since 1st of January 2020, the MPC for end users is made up of:
