P272 is a mandatory industry change that affects the way in which energy consumption is settled for those who?s electricity meters fall into profile classes 5 - 8. The regulation stipulates that AMR (automatic meter reading) meters, with profile classes 5 - 8, will be settled on actual half hourly consumption rather than a pre-determined industry forecast.

It's possible that in 2020 you may finally get your hands on that 'Back-To-The-Future' hoverboard. That your car will drive itself & that 'The Enemy of The State' issues of being "findable" where-ever you are in the world become real. Well I'm hoping for the first 2 and that the last 1 never becomes a reality!

Fast forward to the future

The move known as the P272 essentially means from 01/04/2016 profile classes 05-08 will be changed to half hourly meters (these carry the 00 profile class). In theory this could lower prices as a more accurate DUOS and TNuOS charge is delivered to the business user; of course those with spikes in red charging zones and high unknown TRIAD charges will be hurt; particularly if they don't understand their load or how to profile it.
