Services: Measurement services

Measurement services

The related measurement services aim to make the measuring elements and verification processes required to comply with the law according to their consumption available to users connected to the networks owned by Redexis Gas distribution. The turnover of the corresponding measurement services contracted will be made through the Trading Company of the user.

For each point of supply at least one measurement equipment is installed. All teams must have passed the meteorological control established by the European Union and will comply with the applicable UNE-EN standards.

The measurement equipment shall become property of the consumer or may be leased or transferred to it by the Distributing Company. The services listed hereafter are concluded between the consumer and the distributing company:

Rental of counters

Redexis Gas, through its local distributors, offers customers of various marketing companies the consumption measuring meters, keeping the right of the user to have its own counter.

The economic system of the rental of counters is regulated by the Ministry of Industry, Energy and Tourism; Rates associated with each type of meter are revised and published annually. Redexis gas is required to provide the rental service of counters for the Group 3 (< 4 bar) of consumption.

Assignment of counters

When the counter which is part of the receiving facility is not owned by the distribution company and when damage or equipment checks occur and a temporary installation of another meter is required, Redexis Gas, through its distributors will put at your disposal the counters listed in the following price table.

Verification of Counters and Converters

Energy Policy and Mines, dated March 13, 2006 was published for which “Protocols of detail of the technical management standards of the Gas System were set.”
