The results are reached by means of periodic check of commercial metering systems operation at customers’ premises and at facilities of the division, activities for equalization of phases load in distribution circuits 0,4 kV, replacement of overloaded/underloaded transformers, replacement of wire of 0,4 kV feeders and taps into blocks of apartments for self-supporting insulated conductors. When connecting new customers up-to-date electric energy metering devices are used with their installation of the facades of building for the provision of unhindered access for the personnel and prevention of electric energy theft. During that period in consideration the upgrade of electric energy metering systems was continued, including the automatic system of commercial electric energy metering (AMI) for residential customers and small businesses.
