Submit your meter read online

Some customers are asked to read their own meter because they live in a remote area and it is not cost-effective for us to read their meter every two months. 

Other customers read their own meter on arrangement with Synergy, normally due to access or similar issues. 

If you're reading your own meter, you can submit your reading online or over the phone. Dial 1300 662 708 and follow the prompts to submit your self-reading using your telephone keypad.

If we don't receive your reading by the due date, we'll estimate the reading based on previous electricity use.

Visit the self reader portal below to:

  • register for SMS or email self-reading reminders*, or
  • submit your meter reading

* You'll need your NMI and meter numbers, both can be found on your most recent Synergy account.
