Smart meters are next generation electricity meters to help you better manage your energy use. With a smart meter, you receive more accurate and up-to-date usage information.
We’re upgrading smart meters. Visit the meter upgrade page.
Keeping your energy prices low
We reduce costs by remote electricity meter readings. This means no local meter reading charges.
Accurate and fast readings
Remote meter readings happen daily. The accuracy is checked before sending the reading to your retailer.
You can track and view your energy usage on the myHomeEnergy portal.
Quality and safety of electricity supply
Smart meters record interruptions to power supply. Monitoring means early detection, so we can deploy crews for investigation and restoration sooner.
This quickly reduces potential safety issues.
Quick solar and battery connections
Smart meters help us to do quick assessments of the condition of our network. This makes the process for solar and battery applications easier, and faster.
We can also alert you if your solar generation system stops working.
Talk to your electricity retailer about getting a smart meter, or options if you don’t want one.
