Metering service contract expands to electricity customers

OnStream, part of National Grid Transco, has started working on domestic electricity meters as part of its contract with British Gas to install, repair and maintain gas and electricity meters across large areas of the UK. The contract was awarded in January 2003, and will provide metering services to some 10 million British Gas customers.

OnStream received full UK mainland electricity accreditation in June 2004, following accreditation by Scottish Electricity Settlements Ltd, making it one of only five such meter operators in the country.
