Estonian power distribution system operator Elektrilevi has replaced old power meters with remote-read meters at most of the 627,000 locations where it planned to do so.

At locations where this has yet to be done, work continues with customers to find a suitable time to complete the job.

"We've replaced the meters everywhere with the exception of locations where no agreement has been reached with the customer either because it has not been possible to find a suitable time or for various other reasons," Elektrilevi project manager Mario Raestik told BNS.

"We will go on dealing with it; it's an ongoing activity," he added.

Elektrilevi planned on installing new remote-read power meters at approximately 2,000 locations this year. By way of exception, new power meters are not being installed at locations where no electricity has been consumed since 2013.

The four-year project to replace power meters with remote-read meters all over Estonia has cost €94 million to date.
