For aurora+ customers, sign in here to check your balance, see your daily usage and top up.
The main difference between basic meters and advanced meters is the way in which your energy usage is recorded and sent to Aurora Energy.
Basic meters calculate your energy usage by totalling the kWhs between a “start read date” and an “end read date”. These dates relate to the date(s) a meter reader visits your property to take a meter read (every 3 months).
Advanced meters record your energy usage data in 30 minute intervals and, where mobile phone coverage allows, this information will be sent securely on a daily basis to Aurora Energy. You can read more about advanced meters here.
If you have an advanced meter you won't notice a huge difference to your bill.
The main difference is the usage data on your bill will display a little differently. Instead of a start read and end read (adding up to the total of units used in the billing period), you will only see the entire amount of units used per tariff in the billing period.
