Energy advice

Since May 2019, regional energy advice has been provided in all Finnish regions (except Åland). Each province has its own energy adviser, who provides free energy advice to households, housing associations, municipalities and small and medium-sized enterprises.

In Northern Savonia, you can ask energy advice from the city of Kuopio: Energy Advice Service – Kuopio(opens in a new window, switching to another service)

Private roads and road networks

The Private Roads Act(opens in a new window, switching to another service) regulates private roads and road rights, their creation, modification and termination, road maintenance on private roads, private road concessions and the rights and obligations of road owners and other interested parties. Private roads can be divided into three groups that are private roads on the property, contract roads and delivery roads.

In the private road related matters, you can contact Tissari Jouni. His contact details can be found in the contacts list below.

The municipality of Pielavesi is in charge for the planning and maintenance of the roads and light traffic roads in the urban area of the village. Almost all the roads are lit. The management and maintenance of the municipality’s roads and light traffic roads has been outsourced: between 2022 and 2027, the management and maintenance is carried out by Hirvasoja and Väätäinen consortium.
