Should you require a new electricity or gas meter please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Electricity: subject to an accepted supply contract being in place, we will aim to have your meter installed within 20 working days. This is indicative lead-time and is subject to the size of the supply and metering you currently have at site.
Gas: as with electricity we would require a supply contract to be in place before we install your meter. Unlike electricity meters gas meter installation times can vary greatly depending on the size of your supply and metering equipment required. We use our specialist service provider and meter asset manager, Energy Assets Limited (EAL) to organise the installation. Further information about EAL is given below. They can also provide assistance with new supply requests. EAL will quote you independently of Gazprom Energy for any work they undertake on your behalf.
The connection cost will depend on the size of supply and/or meter you wish to have installed. We, or EAL, will provide a quotation for works as appropriate. Please contact our dedicated site services team on 0161 837 3371 or email us at email@example.com for more information.

We are exchanging all the meters in our gas portfolio so that they are up to current engineering standards and pulse enabled to meet the requirements of an advanced meter. The government has announced that all meters must be smart or advanced.
Pulse enabled means that the gas meter has the capability to transmit the consumption recorded by the meter to an automated meter reading (AMR) device which is attached to the meter through the meter’s pulse port.
