Lede’s electricity distribution charge is billed monthly. Some electricity suppliers issue a combined electricity consumption and distribution charge bill. If you have any questions about your bill or wish to defer payment, please contact the bill’s issuer.
Electricity distribution charge, electricity supply and mandatory power
You pay Lede an electricity distribution charge for your installation’s connection to the company’s power distribution network and for having electricity “transported” to your home. In addition to the distribution charge, you buy the electricity you actually use from the electricity supplier of your choice. You can compare the various suppliers’ prices at strompris.no. If you do not have a subscription with an electricity supplier, Lede will deliver what is called mandatory power. Mandatory power is a temporary arrangement and costs more than the electricity supplied under a normal subscription contract.
Several electricity suppliers collect the electricity distribution charge on behalf of Lede, which means you will receive an all-in-one bill that includes both the electricity you use and our distribution charge.
The electricity distribution charge is made up of several elements
- Fixed charge
- Price per kWh
- Taxes and public charges
The amount billed will vary
The size of the electricity distribution charge that you will have to pay depends on the amount of electricity you use. So, in order to calculate the right distribution charge, we need to know how much electricity you have used. We will send you a reminder when it is time to read your electricity meter. If you don’t read your meter, we will estimate your electricity consumption based on your previous usage. All our customers will have an automated metering system (AMS) installed by 2019. From then on, you will not have to read your meter manually.

When you pay your bill from abroad, you will need to provide the following details:
- Account no.: 8150 16 42150

It is important that we have your correct postal address even though you receive your bills electronically. You can easily update your customer details at My Page. If you have not opted for electronic billing, an invoice will be sent by post. Payment reminders are always sent by post.

How do I arrange to have an all-in-one bill that includes both my electricity consumption and the distribution charge?

Contact the electricity supplier you wish to subscribe to.
You will find copies of your distribution charge bills at My Page (Norwegian only). If you subscribe to an electricity supplier which issues a combined bill for electricity usage and the distribution charge, you must contact your electricity supplier for a copy of the bill.
You can ask for more time to pay your bill (defer payment) at My Page (Norwegian only). Payment may not be deferred by more than 30 days. It is up to you whether you pay the amount due in one lump sum or in several part payments within the 30-day extension period.
I forgot to read my meter and you have billed me for the wrong electricity usage. Can you send me a new bill?
Send in the correct meter reading now, and your electricity consumption will be corrected in your next bill.
We issue bills monthly. You will receive the bill around the middle of the month, with payment falling due at the end of the month.
If you have a Digipost account, the bill will be sent to your electronic mailbox. If you do not wish your bill to be sent there, you must create an “eFaktura” or an “e-postfaktura”.
If the bill is not paid by the specified due date, we send you a reminder. In that case, an overdue payment charge is added to your next bill.
No, that is not possible. Normally, bills fall due for payment at the end of each month.
When you defer payment, interest accrues on the amount owing after the due date. The rate of interest is determined by the Ministry of Finance, and the amount of interest due is added to your next bill.
