Installing a meter
A meter has to be installed if you want:
The order of work is different and depends on whether it is done in an apartment building or a private house, and which meter-related work is performed.
Installing a meter may be required if a new place of consumption is built in the apartment building, such as a new apartment.
Replacing the meter may be required if you want to replace a single-phase meter with a three-phase meter.
If you want to replace a single-phase meter in a private house with a three-phase meter, submit an application to transfer the connection point to a three-phase network connection.

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:
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.
Work required if you want to change the location of your meter
Request a technical inspection document from us to change the location of a meter or build a new metering point. This will tell you if you have to get a reconstruction project for the internal electrical system.
The work must be arranged as outlined in the standard technical inspection documentand in the design, where a design is necessary.
Where the main fuse is over 80 A, you should order and submit to us notification that the electrical installation has been accepted into service along with a copy of the audit.
After you have finished the preparation work we will install a new remotely read meter.
