What do you need to do to comply?
Before April 1st 2017 you will need to appoint a Meter Operator (MOP) and Data Collector (DC) to maintain and run the meters, and send the new readings to your energy supplier.
Did you know you can save money by tendering for the MOP & DC services?
You may not be aware that these services can be tendered across various providers. Historically the energy supplier that holds the energy supply contract itself has always appointed themselves as MOP & DC. This means that the client has little or no control over what these costs are, and will generally be paying more for these services than need be.
Significant savings are available
