It is the customer’s responsibility to find and choose an electricity provider. When you order electricity from an electricity provider, it's their job to notify us and make sure that your grid rental is ok from the same date. You are not supposed to order grid rental directly from us - you're electricity provider will see to that. The electricity provider is also responsible for the billing. Any questions about your invoice should therefor be adressed to your electricity provider.
