Frequently asked questions

Does having an advanced meter make a difference to my bill?

When you have an advanced meter installed the way energy usage appears on your bill will look a little different. Instead of a start read date and end read date, you will see the entire amount of units used per tariff in the billing period.

Although your bill might look a little different, the amount you pay for power is the same whether you have an advanced meter or an old basic meter.
