Solutions for more energy savings
Metering individual use is carefully calculated, as only then can the heat and/or water costs of a complex be fairly allocated. Insight into your use will also lead to greater awareness and a change in attitude towards heating. ista takes care of consumption-indicative billing for you, and can offer a clear insight of use on a weekly basis, enabling you to be even more aware of your energy and water consumption.

The Heat law
You have probably heard of it: the Heat law. The law was enacted in 2014; this is a complex piece of legislation addressing the manifold interests of the various parties. Simply put: since 2014 it is legally required to meter energy consumption at the individual household level in complexes with a common energy supply. Whereas previously all costs were simply divided equally among all residents, now the actual costs incurred per dwelling are passed on.
This is a much fairer approach, as why should an energy-efficient resident be required to support a resident in the same complex who runs the heating 24/7 at 24 degrees Celsius? Now you pay for what you use, however the costs for the common energy use are borne by all residents.
