A success that implies many advantages for customers trough the new smart meter that uses Meters and More technology.
Endesa has reached the 9 million Smart meters installed and it means that it has been already replaced the 78% of the devices managed by the company. These figures represent an important acceleration in the modernization of Endesa meters in Spain and the early fulfillment of the requirements set out by law, which requires the replacement of the 70% of meters with a maximum contracted power of 15 Kw before the end of this year.
Endesa will install a total of 2.4 million remotely managed smart meters during 2016, ending the year with 9.2 million smart devices, 80% of its fleet. This figure exceeds the figure established by law for this year by 15%. In terms of Autonomous Communities, Endesa has already installed over 3.8 million smart meters in Andalusia and Extremadura, 3 million in Catalonia, 700,000 in Aragón, over 500,000 in the Balearic Islands and over 900,000 in the Canary Islands.
The benefits of the new meter also include being able to change supplier, change the characteristics of contracts, and remote registrations or de-registrations and all within 24 hours, in most cases. Furthermore, with the implementation of the new hourly readings, bill estimates can now be eliminated and customers now have new tools to improve their energy efficiency and detailed information about their consumption. Endesa manages daily over 200 million hourly data regarding consumption information for more than 8.5 million customers. Via the websitewww.endesadistribucion.es all customers with a smart meter can view their ‘hourly curve’. Customers can use this space to graphically view their energy consumption during a specific period, measured hourly and they can also download the information to a file.
The intensive processing of the information gathered by the remote management system is also a big step forward for Endesa in terms of modernizing the electricity system, contributing towards Spain being the first company in the world in which small consumers receive their bill based on their hourly consumption.
