Installing a meter

A meter has to be installed if you want to change the location of your meter, or want to replace a single-phase meter with a three-phase meter. It is also necessary if a new apartment has been added to an apartment building.

Installing a meter

A three-phase meter can be installed if the connection point in your apartment building has a three-phase network connection. If you want to switch from a single phase to three phases in a detached house, you have to request a transfer to three phases in order to replace the main fuse.

The work must be arranged as outlined in the standard technical inspection document and in the design, where a design is necessary. The qualified company you have chosen to do the electrical work will decide if a design is needed. You need not submit the design to us.

Some work has to be done in your meter before a three-phase meter can be installed, including:

  • Installation of a three-phase mains cord from the switchboard or connection point to the main fuse of the apartment
  • Replacement of the apartment's single-phase main fuse or circuit breaker with a three-phase one
  • Preparation of wires for connection to a three-phase meter.
  • The connecting party must prove the suitability of the electrical installation with an audit or letter of confirmation by the builder, according to the Device Safety Act.

    After you have finished the preparation work we will install a new remotely read three-phase meter.
