АЕRS: APPROVAL OF METERING EQUIPMENT TRANSFER ON THE DISTRIBUTION SYSTEM EPS DISTRIBUCIJA
Tuesday, June 20, 2017.
On the session held on 20/06/2017, the Council of the Energy Agency of the Republic of Serbia has adopted a Decision on the approval of Metering Equipment Transfer Plan for the transfer of switchboards, i.e. lines, installations and equipment in the switchboards and other devices in the facilities of existing customers, i.e. producers on the distribution system which was adopted by the distribution system operator EPS Distribucija, LLC.
The Energy Law prescribes that all the given devices should be the property of the distribution system operator by 2020 at the latest. The distribution system operator EPS Distribucija, LLC will inform the Ministry of Mining and Energy and the Agency on the transfer twice a year.
The transfer of metering devices, switchboards and lines into the property of the distribution system operator should result in better maintenance and control of these and switch to more modern equipment in order to increase the accuracy of the metering procedure and reduce electricity losses within the distribution system which is both in the interest of final customers and distribution system operators.
