How to read an electricity smart meter one blue 'A' and one orange 'B' button
Normally, a smart meter sends us your readings automatically. So please only give us a reading if we've asked you to do this.
If we've asked you for a reading, please take it from the meter itself – not your in-home display. Your meter is usually on a wall or board; your in-home display either plugs into a socket or runs on batteries.
Looks like you have an Aclara SGM1400 smart meter. Follow these simple steps to read this type of electricity meter:
- Press the orange 'B' button
- Write down the numbers you see in front of ‘kWh’ – this is your reading
Read the numbers from left to right; ignore any zeroes at the beginning and any numbers after the decimal point.
