Smart meters

United Energy is rolling out its Smart Meter project, which will see 650,000 homes and businesses in Melbourne and the Mornington Peninsula receive a new smart meter to help manage electricity consumption.

Customers will be connected to a ‘smart’ metering network which will allow them to better monitor and manage their energy use in order to help reduce carbon emissions.

Customers will also benefit from faster and more convenient electricity connection services and the removal of manual and estimated meter reading services, which will be replaced by more timely, accurate and detailed automated meter readings, improving customer service.

United Energy is working with a number of service providers to  ramp up the rate of meter installation, with completion of the roll-out targeted in the first half of calendar year 2014.
