Where can I find my consumption data?

Where can I find my consumption data?

You can find your consumption data on the portal. The consumption details are taken remotely from a consumption meter. You will be able to inspect your consumption with an average two-day delay.

What does weather-normalized consumption mean?

What does weather-normalized consumption mean?

Weather-normalized consumption data is calculated based on the Finnish Meteorological Institution’s heating degree days and Motiva’s calculation formula. With the help of a heating degree day, the consumption of heating energy is standardised in order to compare the energy consumption of a building in different months or years as well as comparing buildings in different municipalities. The heating degree day is used in estimating the need for heating a building because the energy consumption of a building is almost linear to the difference between the outside and inside temperature.

Why can I not see consumption details for a certain usage area?

Why can I not see consumption details for a certain usage area?

Remote meters are read once a day, however on rare occasions the data cannot be accessed remotely and thus that day’s consumption cannot be found on the portal. The consumption details will be uploaded immediately once the remote connection is re-established.

Why does the consumption details on the portal not match the details on my invoice?

Why does the consumption details on the portal not match the details on my invoice?

We sometimes need to round off consumption details, however this does not affect the invoiced amount as this will always be completely accurate.
