What is an AMR meter?
AMR (Advanced Meter Reading) meters are advanced electricity and gas metering systems that record energy usage and have the ability to remotely* send data to us for use on your bills.
AMR meters are different for gas and electricity. If you’re a gas customer, an AMR is an ancillary device that we attach to your existing meter. If you’re an electricity customer, it is an advanced meter that will replace your existing meter.
Please only apply if you are an active ENGIE customer and don’t already have AMR/SMART Installed.
What will happen once you request an AMR Meter?
When you complete an online form or contact our customer service team letting us know you would like an AMR Meter, the information will be sent directly to our Metering Team.
After a few eligibility checks have been carried out, we will pass your information to one of our agents/installers. They will then arrange to contact you to book an appointment in around 2-3 weeks.
When our installer contacts you to arrange the booking, you will need to answer some questions about the site and meter currently in situ. They will also run through some important things that need to be considered ahead of the booking, such as;
- The Electricity will need to be turned off for around 45 minutes (Gas – no downtime)
- The Meter will need to be clear from any obstructions to allow the engineer access
- There will need to be somebody over the age of 18 on the property at the time of the appointment.
Once the work has been carried out at site, the installer will inform us and we will do the rest. Then you can look forward to your new accurate bills.
If the engineer cannot carry out the work on the day due to other works that may need to be completed. They will inform you and Engie so we can work together to find a solution and get your AMR Meter installed.
*Please note, if you already have an AMR/SMART Meter Installed you have already been upgraded and so we will not actively be rolling out further upgrades on these sites.
With all these advantages, why wait?
