Understanding P272

P272 is legislation that requires any Non Half Hourly (NHH) meters with profile class of 05, 06, 07 or 08 to be changed to Half Hourly Automatic Meter Reads (AMR) by April 2017. The aim of the legislation is to support a smarter more energy efficient market and all organisations with these meters are affected

Your AMR will need to be analysed and maintained by an appointed Meter Operator (MOP) and Data Collector (DC). Your supplier may assign you a MOP & DC on your behalf, but with help from our energy experts you could make an annual saving of approximately £700 for every metering point requiring a change. 

We’re geared up to offer you independent advice and support to make the process simple whilst ensuring you’re taking all the necessary steps to being compliant.
