Problems Changing Counters; A few months ago, after the difficulties experienced by the Customer and Distribution Companies, which faced the change of customer counters that had completed the Stamp year for a fee, the current turmoil ended when epdk emphasized that from 01.01.2014 onwards, electricity meters in the customer measurement system will be replaced free of charge by the distribution companies and ownership of these meters will be in the distribution company.
Article 9 of the Electricity Market Law no. 6446, published on 30.03.2013 and published in the Official Gazette no. 28603,
"The distribution company is the property of the meters established for electrical energy measurements of the users of the distribution system. Counters owned by existing users as of the date this Act comes into force; business and maintenance services are inherited from users at a trail price. The procedures and principles for implementation are regulated by the regulation issued by the Institution."
It has been put on a legal basis with its worship.
Problems Changing Counters
Another shortcoming here is that two months ago, by collecting the price from the customer, the ownership of a newly installed meter owned by the customer was passed on to the Distribution company at the trail price; at least in terms of tax procedure law. As it is known, at least at the end of the depreciation period should be evaluated on the trail price.
In addition, with the consumer who agreed to change the meter by paying the price a month ago; After a month, there will be an injustice and victimization among the consumer who has changed the meter at no cost.
In this case, counter adjustment stations and test desks within distribution companies will not have much function.
Only by the customer who need to suspect that it has recorded incorrect value; and the demand for a heart test by the distribution company, and where necessary, non-party to electricity distribution and consumption; It would be the most accurate practice to test and report at the setting and testing center within the Industrial Provincial Directorates located at the same distance from both sides.
Thus, calibration reports of electricity meters prepared within the Provincial Directorates of Industry; will be more neutral and more reliable and new problems will be avoided
This ingedication directly affects electricity consumption of the test result, which is suspected of recording incorrect consumption; perhaps due to the fact that it will affect the difference invoice to be made against the customer according to the situation, it will surely need to be tested by a neutral unit.
In addition, the report given by a team and institution that is passionate about electrical meter calibration will be more convincing. He said, "I'm not going to let many distribution companies currently use a measurement system; it is difficult to connect an electrical meter to the test table and to provide personnel that can distinguish between the wat and watless counter in the mechanical meters already used.
