Accordingly, the Energy Market Regulatory Board has made some changes to its decision;
In some of these changes, it is observed that clearer and more positive statements have been used technically and administratively.
Although paragraph 5 of article 4 has the provision that at least six different counters (at least three of them domestic) to be used in OSOS will be selected and published on the website of the relevant distribution company;
During this month, the national press overwrited the large electricity meters, so consumers should be required to select the meters to be used in the system from the meters that have been calibration and configuration tested by the competent authorities, taking into account the complaint that loaded invoices are being arranged.
Today, production and import permits have been obtained and the electricity meters in use, because of the faulty measurement of consumers should be prevented from being victimized.

In paragraph 7 of article 4; "If a subscription is used to the communication system for remote communication of the meters to be included in the scope of OSOS; the person responsible for the supply of the infrastructure specified under paragraph 2 is responsible for the subscription fee and distribution companies. The communication costs in place following the subscription are in cover by TEIAs and distribution companies."
Although the clause is included, whether or not there is a communication subscription; If there is a subscription fee, it should also be noted how to keep track of the cost, even though there is no subscription fee, or whether a fee more than the applicable subscription fee is reflected to the subscriber.
However, although it is ruled not to charge the subscriber the communication fee, it should also be checked whether distribution companies charge the subscriber a communication fee.
Paragraph 6 of article 5 says, "If water, natural gas and heat metering meters are included in the scope of OSOS to be established by distribution companies; the information collected from these meters may be shared with the relevant water, natural gas and heat distribution services at the price to be determined by the distribution companies."
The article also has the clearest expressions in terms of environmental sensitivity for water and gas distribution companies and consumers.
Communication protocols in the decision issued on 10.04.2011; modem specifications and communication options that can be used are detailed, only additional and explanations have been made in the new decision.
Distribution companies should be here, the most they can stand on is the amount of data, format, and ways in which data is received from counters. Apart from the index information to be received from the counters, it should be clear what information will be received, how often it will be received, and how it will be used.
