A Meter Operator or (MOP contract) is required for all half hourly electricity contracts. This contract covers the supply of the meter, maintenance and the telecommunications for sending consumption data to the energy supplier.
What is a MOP Contract
A Meter Operator (or MOP) will fit your meter and then provide ongoing meter maintenance. If your meter is a non-half hourly meter (NHH) your supplier will allocate the local meter operator to install metering at your site. If you require a half-hourly meter (HH), you will need to choose a meter operator to attend to fit the meter. You must arrange a contract (known as a Meter Operator Agreement or MOP contract) with your chosen meter operator in order for this work to go ahead.
Half Hour MOP Contracts
Sites with a maximum demand of over 100kW are required to have metering installed that is capable of measuring consumption in half hourly periods. The meters are read remotely via a telecommunications link.
Q. What is the cost of a meter operator contract agreement? A meter operator agreement costs between £300.00 to £750.00 per annum dependent on the meter operator and type of meter. There is usually a separate charge for the communications link for data transfer from the meter.
Q. How do I set up Meter Operator Agreement? Once the meter operator is chosen, a contract for supply should be arranged. The contract will include payment for the meter to be fitted as well as an annual payment for the maintenance of that meter. The MOP agreement will not organise a meter installation date. You will need to liaise with your supplier in order to get a meter installation date after you have set-up a MOP Agreement. Without this MOP Agreement in place, the meter installation date cannot be arranged.
Sanctus can arrange the whole process of Half Hourly meter installation for you.
How we can help you...
Much like the stock market, the price of electricity and gas is unpredictable and as we have seen in recent years, can fluctuate considerably.
The water industry in England deregulated on 1 April 2017 allowing increased retail competition and will enable business customers more choice over their supplier.
