Meter Energisation? If you have a de-energised meter, which has had its fuses removed you can arrange for us to reconnect it, this is also known as ‘re-energising’ it.
Meter De-energisation? If you have a meter which you wish to stop using temporarily, we can arrange for the fuses to be removed. This will ‘de-energise’ it. You can then have the fuses replaced when you need to re-energise it.
Meter Disconnection? If you have a meter which you wish to stop using permanently, we can arrange for the meter and associated cabling to be removed.
Smart meters enable two-way communication between meter and supplier, so meter readings can automatically be transmitted at a choice of frequency, including half hourly..
The upgrade to Smart meters will mostly impact households and small businesses, but also some larger businesses with smaller sites.
At the present time, we are not able to support the functionality of electricity or gas Smart metering. This means that we are currently only able to install AMR meters, which we can support and manage fully.
If you are interested in having a Smart meter installed, you can register your interest with us. By doing so, this will be on the basis that we are currently not in a position whereby we can advise you if, or when, we will be able to manage SMETS2 Smart meters in the future. However, we will of course keep you updated when we have a clearer view of what our plans will be. It is important to us that we set your expectations upfront, which is why, at the current time, we cannot specify when we will be able to manage SMETS2 Smart metering.
Please note that Smart meters cannot replace any existing 3-phase or current transformer (CT) meters. If the network signal is insufficient in your area, you may also not be able to upgrade to Smart. But we can advise when we assess your meters.
Reporting energy meter theft
Energy theft, or meter tampering, is where someone deliberately alters their gas or electricity meter so it doesn’t record their usage properly.
It’s a criminal offence which can lead to a fine and 5 years in prison, but more importantly it’s extremely dangerous. Tampering with a home’s energy supply can put the safety of people in the property and surrounding area at risk.
Not only that, but it's estimated to cost customers, suppliers and the energy industry £400,000,000 a year. We work hard alongside Ofgem to stamp it out, but we need your help.
If you think someone is stealing energy or tampering with the meter, please contact Crimestoppers.
Crimestoppers: Energy theft hotline 0800 023 2777
If your meter has been stolen, call your local Police on 101 and get a crime reference number. Then contact Customer Enquiries and arrange for a new meter to be installed.
If you can smell gas or think there's a leak, turn off your supply at the meter and Call the National Gas Service Emergency Line on 0800 111 999.
And if you're worried about the safety of your or a nearby electricity supply, please contact the relevant electricity distributor for your area.
