Such a system is considered to be more efficient producing lower carbon emissions whilst also benefiting from economies of scale.
Most electric and water meters are located in communal cupboards within your building (though some water meters are located within flat utility cupboards).

Team East Village take monthly readings and pass these across to Get Living London monthly at the end of each month. If you would like a reading, please do contact your relationship management team and they will be able to confirm details of your most recent readings along with your serial number.
