Below we have explained some of the words and concepts connected to buying electricity:
- Målar = meter
- Målarnummer /målepunkt-ID = meter-number/
- Målerstand = meter digit
The meter is a device that sums up your electricity consumption. Each household has a meter and each of them has a unique meter-number. The meter-number must be stated when you report your electricity consumption.
There are two kinds of meters.:
The new kind of meter will automatically read and report your electricity consumption.
If you have the old kind of meter you must check the meter-digits and report this to Finnås Kraftlag.
You report this either by our free phone-number: 800 68 108, or by SMS to number 2258, or by calling our office phone number 53428900.
You find your meter connected to the fuse-box in your home, or in a cabinet outside your newer house.
By January 2019 all Norwegian households will have installed the kind of meter which automatically reads the consumption.
