The article reveals the support of the Northern Ireland Authority for Utility Regulation (NIAUR) for household metering in Northern Ireland. In its submission, the NIAUR said there was "little prospect of consumers accepting capital-value based charges as fair." According to NIAUR Chief Executive Iain Osborne, he "broadly saw a lot of advantages to universal metering." The NIAUR said metering had an important role to play in managing demand and leakage.
