What is AMR - and what are the benefits?

Automated Meter Reading (AMR) & SMART meters accurately measure your energy use and send readings directly to your supplier. This ensures accurate invoicing and helps you take control of your energy management.


It’s easier to forecast usage and budget ahead – wave goodbye to estimated bills


Accurate reads – your new meter will be read remotely each month 


Less administration – no need to validate invoices, so you can get on with running your business

It’s free! Our standard AMR service won’t cost you a penny

Why do I Need it?

Government legislation requires energy suppliers to install AMR or smart meters in every UK business before the end of 2020.

How can I upgrade my gas or electricity meter?

We’ll need your MPAN (electricity meter point administration number) / MPRN (gas meter point reference number), account number, site contact name, phone number and email address. Once you have collated this information, please complete the form on this page.

Important Information

  • AMR will be installed with a meter exchange, and as this means your supply will be interrupted our agent will make sure a suitable time is agreed with you before any work is carried out.
  • When the works have been completed, our agent sends flows to update industry databases and Total Gas & Power’s internal systems. We also review progress on a weekly basis, which means the first AMR read is usually available for invoicing within one month of completing the works.
  • Should you decide to leave our supply, industry flows will confirm to your new supplier that you already have an AMR or a SMART meter.
  • An enhanced AMR service is available - our Platinum AMR service provides daily meter readings.
