How to read an electricity smart meter with two grey buttons

About your smart meter reading

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.

It looks like you have a Honeywell Elster AS302P (SMETS2) smart meter. Follow these steps to read this type of electricity meter:

  1. Press the bottom grey button to wake up the screen
  2. Check the screen says 'Cum. Imp. R01'
  3. Write down the numbers in front of ‘kWh’ – this is your reading
Tips to read your meter

Read the numbers from left to right; ignore any zeroes at the beginning and any numbers after the decimal point.
