Households and businesses will benefit from improved services through the information that is provided by advanced metering.
- Most customers through their retailer will have access to information about their daily and hourly power usage.
- No access will be required onto your property for meter readers.
- There will be no need for someone to hold keys to access houses to read internal meters.
- Power accounts will be based upon actual consumption not on an estimate.
Medium/long term benefits from advanced meters include:
- monitor your own electricity usage and conserve energy as a result.
- set alarms to alert you if the power usage is too high.
- set energy efficient appliances to interact with their advanced meter to alter usage to suit their lifestyle and manage electricity costs.
- more choice of tariff plans through your electricity retailer.
