At the excellent charging stations provided by Helgeland Kraft, you can recharge both your and your car’s batteries. Your car’s batteries can be charged with renewable hydropower, while you can recharge with experiences in beautiful nature.

“Lad Opp” is a series of charging stations throughout Nordland, where you can charge your electric car with renewable electricity from Helgeland Kraft. The charging stations are specially designed to be pleasant places to take a break during your journey through Helgeland. Many of them are also near attractions and hiking destinations, making it easier to plan charging stops according to your holiday plans, rather than the other way around.


At the Lad Opp charging stations, you can pay with Kople, either via the app, a charging tag, or drop-in payment. There are different prices for normal charging, fast charging, and ultra-fast charging.

The charging stations are open 24/7.
