Smart meters are the next generation of electricity meters providing you with a better way to manage your energy use. With a smart electricity meter you receive accurate and up to date usage information. We’re currently making a small upgrade to some of our electricity meters, replacing the communications card to provide you with faster and more reliable data than ever. Click here for more details.
Keeping your energy prices low
By being able to remotely read your electricity meter, and avoiding local meter reading charges, we are able to reduce costs. We can even provide you an alert if your solar generation system stops working.
Accurate and timely readings
We read your meter remotely on a daily basis and validate its accuracy before sending to your retailer. You can track and view your energy usage by registering free of charge on the myHomeEnergy portal at any time.
Quality and safety of electricity supply
Our meters record interruptions to power supply. By monitoring and earlier detection of faults we can deploy teams for investigation and restoration of your power, and mitigate potential safety issues faster.
Quick SOLAR and battery connections
By using data obtained from our Smart meters, we can effectively assess the condition of our network so we can quickly asses your solar and battery application for approval.
For information about getting a smart meter, or options if you don’t want one, talk to your electricity retailer.

AusNet Services is your Electricity Distributor, providing electricity to your property. Our specialised technicians will be visiting your area shortly to make a small change to your electricity meter, replacing your current communications card within the meter with a new, upgraded card. This will improve how we communicate with your meter and reduce the need for future visits.
We don’t need to turn your power off, and you won’t lose electricity supply to your property. The task will take less than 15 minutes to complete, and there is no need for you to be there. We just need safe and unrestricted access to the electricity meter. Please make sure there is clear and safe access to your electricity meter.
