Since 2012 electricity Suppliers have been committed to installing Smart Meters onto supplies where the profile class is 05 to 08 and should have now completed this commitment.
Now the meters have been installed the Suppliers have to trade them half-hourly which for a large number of these meters is proven difficult as they are not reliable enough to support half-hourly data collection and this is having an impact on the data quality that is being submitted into settlements and customer invoices.
WPD Smart Metering can fully support meter operator interoperability and has been engaged by suppliers and customers to prepare or repair meters for this change of measurement.
We can help you with this process. Click here for further information.
