Replacing the primary meter with telemetry
The primary meter is equipment a distributor uses to measure the consumption parameters with which the electricity bill is generated. All clients pay a monthly rent for this meter, which varies according to the electricity tariff they have. Many companies do not know it yet, but we’ll give it to you in advance, the meter that the electric distributor installs does not offer any extra information. Thanks to them, you will only get billed.

FAQs on primary meters
Cutting off the power is only necessary in supplies with contracted power is less than or equal to 50 Kw. In these cases the power cut does not exceed 15 minutes and it’s in step with the client.
Yes. Changing meters is a widespread practice among consumers of more than 15 kW. The law establishes that the consumer has the right to have a meter owned or rented provided that it is certified, the meter consumption can be accessed and its installation can be supervised.
The only cost the distribution company charges is that of unsealing: - If it is low voltage, € 12 + VAT is charged - If it is high voltage, € 75 + VAT is charged.
