  • Synopsis

    An issue has arisen associated with the Supplier Licence obligation to install “advanced meters” on all Profile Class 5-8 metered sites by April 2014. The issue arises on sites where there are currently a number of whole current meters installed which have a rating over 100 Amps (typically 160). The issue is that it is no longer possible to procure 160 Amp whole current meters and a solution is required to enable an advanced meter to be installed on these sites.

    The attached paper from the AMO explains the issue in more detail and discusses the options for resolving the issue.

    The SIG is asked to review the issue and investigate the various options outlined in the AMO paper.
