History of the company
Historically, Alajärvi has had small-scale electricity cooperatives in several villages. These small electricity cooperatives were in operation before the establishment of Alajärvi Sähkö Oy, and the small operators supplied electricity mainly to their local area. The use of electricity in Alajärvi increased during the Second World War, and the Alajärvi Electricity Company was established in January 1944. At that time, anyone wishing to receive electricity from the company had to become a shareholder, and the number of shares to be subscribed depended on the number of rooms in the household or the number of hectares of arable land.
