SMART METER INSTALLATION PROCESS

The process of upgrading your electricity meter from the old analogue models will ideally be completely painless. Right now, it’s mandated that smart meters replace any old electricity meter that has either broken or reached the end of its lifespan. If you’ve just built your dream home, you’ll also be required to install a smart meter rather than an analogue model. The good news is there won’t be any safety concerns when upgrading. There are a number of state and federal regulations in place designed to ensure the safety of both the homeowner and the installer.

Before any installation takes place, your retailer will get in touch with you. They will give you a fair amount of notice as to when the installation will take place. This will usually come in the form of a succession of letters as the install date draws closer. Once the install date arrives, your installer will show up at your door. Don’t worry, you won’t have to pay your installer anything, any costs you might incur will be from your provider and these vary between each retailer. Your electricity will be turned off for a small period of time, around thirty minutes to a full hour. During this time your smart meter will be installed.

Ensure that your installer has clear, unencumbered access to your homes electricity meter. If there is a situation where your installers meter access might be impeded by a locked door or anything else, contact your electricity provider and inform them of the situation. Once the new meter is in place, your installer will provide you with everything you need to read your new meter. So long as you understand all the steps of the process that we’ve outlined above, your installation process should go completely smoothly.

How is a Smart Meter different from a traditional meter?

Unlike a smart meter which can give you regular updates on your usage, a traditional meter only records the amount of electricity that runs through it. So, the only data you can obtain from a traditional meter is the amount of energy you have used since your last read. Traditional meters are also only read once every 3 months, so if you are with an energy retailer providing monthly bills, two out of the three bills will be estimated and may not be a true reflection of what you have actually used. The third bill you receive after your meter is read will reconcile against the estimated bills to make sure you are not over or underpaying.

Benefits of a Smart Meter?

he main benefits include: Remote reading to stop the need for your distributor to come out and manually take readings every three months, the ability to change your tariff configuration, live information sent to your electricity provider which allow you to read your information online and on integrated apps that some retailers supply.

What is a Smart Meter?

A smart meter measures your energy consumption and solar export (if applicable) every 30 minutes and sends the information onto your distributor. These meters s measure your consumption with great accuracy and will stop you receiving an estimated bill if you have received one in the past.

Who cannot get a Smart Meter?

In some cases, smart meters may not be permitted due to the below:

  • Poor Wiring
  • Current metering arrangement
  • Asbestos or hazardous materials being present
  • Evidence of meter tampering
