Pre-payment solution meets metering and billing regulations


ith the recent introduction of the heat network (Metering & Billing) regulations for District and

Communal heating systems, building owners, developers and Housing Associations must now ensure meters are installed in each dwelling to accurately measure energy use for residents. Prior to these regulations it was common place for residents to pay a flat rate for heating and hot water, which was not based on usage but just divided equally by all dwellings. Evinox Energy offers a simple solution to meet

the regulations with their PaySmart® pre-payment technology, which is inbuilt in every ModuSat® heat interface unit. Not only is the technology in- tegrated, it can also be activated remotely at any time, providing a flexible billing approach. The Evinox Energy range, of ModuSat® heat

interface units, is the only solution available that features integrated pre-pay ready billing technol- ogy. Other pre-payment systems require addi- tional hardware to be installed in the dwelling,

which can add cost to the project. In addition, many other solutions are also wireless, which may sound attractive, but can bring a host of issues especially where there is an unstable connection. Unlike our hardwired Bus or Ethernet system, which is not susceptible to any of these wireless connectivity issues. The PaySmart® system enables residents to be

in control of their own energy bills by paying in advance and therefore removing any burden of building up unpaid bills or debt. Unlike tradi- tional pre-payment systems, the process of adding energy credit to the PaySmart® system is auto- mated so there is no requirement for the resident to insert a card for activation. Residents can pur- chase their energy online using our Residents Website 24 hours a day, at a local Payzone outlet, by monthly Direct Debit or Standing Order, using Evinox’s Web App on a smart phone or tablet any time or over the telephone.

Pegler Yorkshire launches essential tool
