Re: Monitoring electricity supply

Hi Alison

Our electricity supplier is Endesa, and we have a new smart meter, so can use their online monitoring of our supply. Usage is updated automatically every couple of days, and so even when back in the UK we can monitor that the power supply is still active......

Hope this helps
