The new remotely managed meters are more efficient and offer many more advantages than your previous meter. The installation of this device was established by the Ministry of Energy, Tourism and Digital Agenda and it affects all power distribution companies.
Distribution companies have until 31 December 2018 to replace all the old meters for contracted powers up to 15 kilowatts with new smart meters, according to the plans approved by the Ministry and the autonomous communities. The installation will be free of charge and you will receive a letter informing you of the date on which the meter will be changed.
Endesa smart meter: how it works
In terms of the differences with your old meter, in particular, processes such as registrations, cancellations, interruptions, reconnections, power control and tariff changes can all be carried out remotely, without any manual intervention on the meter. The new meter enables faults to be located and addressed more quickly, ensuring your power supply is interrupted for the shortest time possible.
Your electricity reading via the device is also better, as it is more exact and punctual and it provides a more flexible billing service, as the tariffs you subscribe to via your reseller company can be programmed remotely.
This improved reading system also allows you to view your electricity consumption details, so you can choose the best tariffs to suit your specific energy needs. You will benefit from a more precise bill based on your real consumption.
All Endesa’s customers that already have smart or remotely managed meters integrated in the system, have access to a new instrument via the website www.endesadistribucion.es that enables them to access their ‘hourly curve’ and view their consumption pattern on a graph.
If you have any queries or would like more information, you can find out more details about these new devices on the Endesa Distribución website. As you can see, it is a win-win situation.
