Submit a meter reading

Why submit a meter reading?

By regularly submitting meter reads, your bills will be based on your actual usage, rather than estimates. To put it simply – you’ll only pay for what you’ve used.

When and why to submit your meter reading(s):

  • If you have received a reminder to enter your meter readings for electricity and/or gas account(s)
  • If you have received an incorrectly estimated bill for your energy account(s)
  • To keep your business electricity and/or gas account up-to-date. Sending us regular meter readings helps us to keep your bills as accurate as possible

How to read your business electricity meter

How to read your business electricity meter(s)

Your meter is a precision instrument that records the number of electricity units you have used. It has been certified by independent examiners, so you can be confident of an accurate reading. It is simple to use, and by keeping recordings of your readings, you can monitor your energy consumption and budgeting for your future electricity bills. 

Your business electricity meter may be located with other meters in a communal area. To be sure the meter is for the electricity supplied to your business, please ensure it matches the serial number shown on your business electricity bill.

Our guide on how to read your business meter covers the most commonly used meters. If your particular type of meter is not covered and you would like advice on how to read it, please call 0800 096 2255(1) and one of our dedicated Business Advisers will be happy to help.
