Why do I need to install or replace a meter?

A meter has to be installed if you need a new metering point in an apartment building or want to change the location of your meter. If an apartment is divided for example, or new apartments are added that require separate metering. If an apartment building wants direct contracts for each apartment, a transfer from joint to individual purchasing of electricity has to be requested first.

  • Always keep your remotely read meter plugged in!

    Unlike the old meters, your remotely read meter needs a constant power supply. Even if you leave your summer house or somewhere similar for a longer time, you should switch off the power in the house from the switch on the meter, not from the main fuse. The meter is supplied with power when the screen is not dark but shows alternating numbers.
