Remote meter reads by postal sector

The interactive map below presents a view of NHH remote meter reads by total valid NHH meter reads water for each of the 9,000+ postal sectors in England and Wales and also displays wholesaler water supply area boundaries. Postal sectors are categorised and visualised by remote meter read rate, with darker shading denoting a higher proportion of remote reads. Users can search and zoom around the map and also click on specific postal sectors to find further information on postal sector, total number of meter reads and wholesaler region. The proportion of remote reads gives an indication of the geographic extend of smart meter deployment and the number of meters that are actively being read remotely. Meter read rates are based on best average view from the NHH central market operating systems (CMOS) over the previous 12 months. Remote reads are defined as those reads that can be collected without physically having to access the meter and include both meter reads collected from Automated Meter Read (AMR) meters, which require local proximity and meters connected to the Advanced Meter Infrastructure (AMI) Smart network. This map is updated quarterly. Last update 23/04/2024 13:27
