Telephone AMR (Phone AMR) Metering
This meter, which connects to a dedicated telephone line,
enables WMECo to remotely read and collect your monthly
billing determinates. The meter can also record hourly
load profile - in intervals of 15 minutes. This data is
used for daily ISO New England Settlement Reporting.

This option allows customers or energy suppliers:
- to choose their billing cycle or specific monthly billing
date (i.e.: first day of the month, end of the month, 15th of
each month or some other monthly schedule).
- the choice of "MData Online."
To obtain this service, customers or energy suppliers must
provide a dedicated, direct-dialed and analog-type telephone
line, as well as an RJ-11 jack, situated within 3 inches of
the meter socket. Even if there is more than one meter,
only one phone line is typically required, and there is a
five meter maximum per phone line. For more information,
see diagram labeled Phone AMR Meter Installation.
For an agreed-upon fee, WMECo acquires, owns, installs
and maintains the appropriate telephone access recording
meter (phone AMR meter) and a meter interface enclosure.
- WMECo relocates the RJ-11 telephone jack to be within
the interface enclosure at the time of installation.
- The telephone line must be in working order with an
assigned telephone number written legibly on the RJ-11 jack.
- This telephone number must be given to WMECo before a
Phone AMR meter is installed.
