Smart Meters for Electricity

September 01, 2019

Western Power have commenced using advanced meters on all new homes, maintenance replacements and customer requested replacements. 

Advanced meters are a digital meter with an internal communications device that allows readings to be taken remotely. The 30 minute intervals will replace the current 2-monthly intervals and provide greater insight to network demands and creates potential for the retail electricity market evolve to make use of the information.

Small devices will also be fitted to power poles throughout suburbs over the next year to receive the information. 

Importantly, there are no changes to the way you approach installing a meter.
