edp meter

Post Posted: Thu Feb 09, 2017 8:04 pm

Sorry about this another long winded story. My meter was last read in may when i supplied the reading since then all bills have been estimated so being here thought it about time it should have another reading which they queried as i didn't have 5 numbers on them so they sent a technican to check the meter who told me nothing . A couple of days ago without telling me the meter was changed , am i supposed to provide readings from this as its totally different from the old one and no instructions as such what to do.Tried to phone them to give directions to my place was a nightmare so should i just bite the bullet and go to faro and talk to them or wait for the bill? of which i expect to get . Confused

We're home 29 days a month; the one day we're away is always the day the meter reader comes, and can't get in.

Guess I'd better submit my readings!

They always estimate higher use in winter, even though for the last 8 years we always used less in winter.

Richard just checked on the leaflet they left on the ground , (which was the only reason i looked in my meter box !)and it says sagemcom cx2000-9 .had another look now the sun is'nt shining think its the last three code numbers that count i.e (181) (182) (183).

Liveaboard I've always been reasonably happy with estimates but usage must have gone up since may because of pool and heating and water etc this year so probably my fault for not picking it up earlier but they send letters saying they can't read the meter despite me telling them where the property/meter is .Now painted the name on my post box in the hope they will see it

If you register on the EDP site you can submit your meter reading online, there's usually a 3 day window for what date they want the reading in any given billing period.

i think thats what they'd like me to do but not here all the time , the thought of driving to faro just to give them the readings put me off doing it which is why i said my fault as well .
