The new equipment connects the Portuguese houses to intelligent distribution network. Energy Box is a smart meter that does much more than meter energy and is equipped with the technology needed to support the provision of electricity services, namely remote communication.
EDP Distribuição now has a two-way consumer communication channel - an intelligent power management device that will gradually replace current meters, whether they are consumption points and / or generation points.
With this equipment, EDP Distribuição will remotely perform all operations, such as readings, power changes, tariff settings, switching on and off. This equipment also promotes the active participation of consumers in the management of their consumption, providing information that translates into energy efficiency and lower cost.
EDP Distribuição Energy Box
With remote management, consumers can:
- know your consumption pattern better, which will allow you to correct your less efficient habits and thus reduce your electricity bill;
- know the times of day when you consume the most and when you can use electricity at a more favorable price, being able to program your appliances to work during these periods;
- remotely activate services such as tariff changes and contracted power and know that EDP Distribuição detects electrical power failures to your home automatically.
In addition, your retailer or energy service company will be able to offer services and pricing plans that are permanently tailored to your profile and consumer needs, as well as access to integrated home automation solutions to interact with various home appliances.
Energy Box - A Smart Box
The new equipment replaces the current meter, bringing numerous advantages as it allows access to detailed information on consumption. Thus, the consumer can know the hours of the day when he consumes the most and when he can use electricity at a more favorable price.
This information will allow the electricity bill to be based on actual consumption, collected automatically and on a monthly basis.
For their comfort, the consumer may make contractual changes in power, cycle or tariff, without the need for specialized personnel. The customer may also consult the analysis of their consumption pattern or make simulations of hour cycles, and it is even possible to program automatic warnings according to parameters defined by him.
When integrated with microproduction, the new equipment allows the consultation of housing energy balances, allowing the customer / microproducer to identify, in a simple way, the periods in which he is a consumer and those who are a producer.
The retailer or energy service company will be able to offer its customers services and pricing plans that are permanently tailored to different consumer profiles and needs, as well as access to integrated home automation solutions for interacting with various consumer devices.
Certified Energy Box
The Energy Box is certified according to the European standard EC Directive 2004/22/EC, referring to instruments of energy counting, attested to their degree of accuracy and reliability.
