ESB Networks - Recall of Ampy Meters

ESB Networks regrets to advise that a small proportion of an electronic meter (Ampy) could develop a fault.  The manufacturer has advised that the issue is only likely to arise with a very small proportion of meters (<10% of 17,000 affected meters).  There is a potential for a small component within the meter to fail which would cause the meter to record inaccurately for a short period of time and then to stop working.  ESB Networks will carry out a planned exchange programme to remove all of these meters over the next few months.  If you have this type of meter you will receive a letter of clarification from us this week.  The affected meters are single phase meters with RM code RM067/RM068.
