Metering Data Provision Procedures
The Metering Data Provision Procedures (MDPP) made under clause 7.16 of the National Electricity Rules (NER) allow customers or their authorised representatives to obtain consumption data from their retailers and Distribution Network Service Providers (DNSPs).
How is the data delivered?
Accumulation and interval summary data formats – the MDPP requires retailers and DNSPs to deliver the specified minimum metering data requirements to retail customers or retail authorised representatives.
Interval data format – the MDPP requires delivery of a standardised NEM12 file format. A retail customer guide is to be made available to help customers understand and interpret the metering data, and explain how usage, generation or controlled load is represented. This information is contained in the file delivered to the customer or authorised representative.
What are the delivery timeframes?
|Customer or authorised representative request||Delivery timeframe|
|Request for metering data for one retail customer||Best endeavours must be made to deliver data within 10 business days|
|Request for metering data for more than one but up to 100 retail customers in a single business day||Best endeavours must be made to deliver data within 20 business days|
|Request for metering data for more than 100 retail customers in a single business day||Timeframe to be negotiated between DNSPP and customer or authorised representative|
