How do I read an electronic electricity meter (one rate; not smart)?

Your electronic meter might scroll through its various screens automatically. Or you might have to press a button to get you to the meter reading screen.

When you see a row of numbers:

  • Write them down from left to right
  • Ignore any numbers in red
  • The meter reading example below is 46043

Not sure which reading goes where when submitting your reading?
The 'submit a meter reading' page in MyAccount and the app show your last meter readings – just match your new readings up with these.
