How do I read my smart meter?

A smart meter is a sophisticated meter that records the electricity usage in half hour intervals as well as total consumption and is capable of sending this information daily to Western Power. This advanced meter provides improved accuracy of meter readings, early detection of power quality issues, remote disconnection of power and improved monitoring of power outages to assist maintenance crews in reducing restoration times.

Smart meters are part of a wider Western Power initiative called Smart Grid, which seeks to take a traditional “poles and wires” electricity grid into the future by adding digital and communication technology.
