How to read your meters
Reading your meter can help you better understand your energy usage. Below we explain how to read various types of electricity meters, including smart meters, as well as your gas meter.
Smart electricity meter
A smart electricity meter measures and records the amount of electricity consumed in 30 minute usage intervals. The usage data is encrypted and stored in the smart meter until the meter remotely communicates this information to ActewAGL.
Understanding your electricity usage in 30 minute intervals can enable you to better understand when and how electricity is consumed in your home and can lead to better management of your electricity usage.
