  • Synopsis

    DCP383 facilitated the movement of meters by DNOs concurrent with a service alteration.

    However we are receiving requests to move meters when there is no service alteration. These requests are coming from customers, who say they have been advised by their supplier that the DNOs move meters, or are being passed on by suppliers themselves.

    Any meter work that does not involve the cut-out is the responsibility of the supplier, or their meter operator.

    We believe this confusion may arise when the new meter location is more than 1m away, which requires sufficient cabling to the new location to be installed by an electrician, to facilitate the movement of the meter by the supplier
