Energy meters & global GPS time reset on April 6

Are your energy metering systems prepared for the global GPS time reset on April 6?

Please be aware that from April 6th, some energy metering devices, or to be more precise, some GPS receivers may start to behave strangely. 

Data coming from GPS tracking devices may jump back in time,  potentially up to 20 years backwards.

Should I be concerned?
You should be concerned if your EMS is more than 10-15 years old, has a GPS and is not updated. Ask yourself – what is the impact to my system if the GPS receiver stopped operating or put out wrong GPS or UTC information?
