Meter reading

You may not have to submit your meter reading anymore!

When you buy electricity, both you and we have responsibilities. Our responsibility is to deliver a safe and secure supply of electricity to you. In return, we ask that you please submit your power meter readings every two months. If your local grid company have installed an AMR (Automatic Meter Reading unit) in your house or Apartment, then you no longer have to do anything.


Automatic meter reading (AMR) is the technology of automatically collecting your electrical consumption, and transferring that data to a central database for billing. In 2018 local grid companies all over Norway started installing new meter reading units in Norwegian homes. These meter reading units automatically submits your meter reading for you.




IF your house or apartment does not have a AMR unit yet, you have to submit your power meter readings every two months. You can read more about why and how here:



Our customers are obliged to submit power meter readings to us. This must be done according to the routines set by the power grid company, and at least once each year. More importantly, your readings ensure that the invoices/bills you receive from us are correct. If we do not receive meter readings from you, we will estimate your power consumption based on previous readings and other historic and average consumption data. This is undesirable for both you and us, as it can lead to wrongful billing.


Our customers shall submit their readings every two months. See the scheduled dates for meter reading below - please submit readings as close as possible to these dates:
January 1st • March 1st • May 1st • July 1st • September 1st • November 1st


The easiest option for our English speaking customers is simply to use our Text Message Service (SMS) from your mobile phone, or to call our Customer Service (70 04 63 00). One of our staff members will be happy to answer your call and take your reading. Opening hours are located on the right side of the website.
You may also submit your meter reading here on our website or through our automated phone service.
