Meter Reporting

Postby Buzby » Mon Mar 27, 2017 9:33 am

Well, my 5 years with an Energy Savings Trust funded EV Chargepoint are now up, and I can now shut down the GSM modem that reports my usage to EST. I gather new installs don't have this as a requirement now, and to be honest - I've had no interaction from anyone about my usage or the data provided. I realised I could register with `Meter Online' (and pay) to access my consumption record, but as EST were (presumably) already doing this, I didn't think it sensible to pay a firm twice for the same data.

I wonder how much I'll get for the modem on eBay?!

I don't think any information on the telematics data from Scotland's home chargers has even been put into the public domain has it? How does it even work in Scotland, is it grouped with the EST England, or is it our own EST (HES) that oversees it?

I have never heard a jot about my data either, not that I am too interested. Like most, I have a meter and can see exactly what I have used and also how much it has cost me with a simple calculation.

You would think there would have been some stats shared by now, like just how many % of people rarely use their home chargers? I.e. less than once a week, or even less than 10 times a year. In Scotland that figure must be quite an interesting one with our free public charging.

We can ask TS at the AGM. As for the data, considering how many stories of installs in driveways of folk who didn't have ANY EV, if true, then this information isn't going to be made public any time soon!

Very good questions: lets ask them.
I have no idea how they use my data, but I must have access to it, according to the law.

Edit: Ah... as the meter has already been registered I just need to go via "view a meter"

Edit2: But... my readings stop from exactly 3 years after the meter was installed. It seems that all the newer data has been discarded :-(

That seems reasonable since the Scheme was for 3 years and they're not going to facilitate it unless they're being paid. Of course, if you choose to, the data that is missing might magically reappear?

Can't find any details on the website for switching the account to me. Might try harder when not so busy!

When I tried last year, it accepted my registration and I got to the payment page where I thought I'm not paying again, as ScotGov already had, I just wanted to access the same data - so I didn't proceed. No other issues as `I assumed concurrent access didn't phase it (pun intended).
