What is AMR?

Automated Meter Reading (AMR) meters are the first generation of smarter meters. An AMR meter includes a recording device and a one-way communication link to allow remote collection of your consumption data, enabling you to gain more control over your usage.

What benefits do AMR meters offer me?

  • fewer site visits and therefore less administration
  • improved billing accuracy
  • availability of your consumption data (with Energy View)
  • better budgeting for energy costs, including carbon reporting

How do I know that my meter is an AMR meter?

If you have agreed a metering contract together with your EDF Energy supply contract, AMR metering charges are displayed on your invoice. However, if you have a direct contract with a meter operator, no charge appears on your electricity invoice as you are being charged directly by your meter operator.

Note: You may wish to get your meters upgraded either via your electricity supplier or directly via your chosen meter operator. In both cases, you will need to contact us on the above phone number so we can start the meter exchange process.

How can I view my consumption data?

The consumption data of your meters can be viewed via our online energy monitoring tool, Energy View.

What if I have specific metering requirements?

Our Energy Field Services department are our metering experts. They have national meter installation capability and can provide a full service from meter installation to data provision.

Your sub-metering, multi-utility and half-hourly meters can be installed via a Meter Operator contract (see next tab above).
