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.
