Had a new meter installed?

If you’ve recently had a new meter installed, there are a couple of things you should know…

Congratulations, you’ve got an advanced meter! 

Whether you’ve got a brand new connection, you've changed your energy plan, you’ve arranged a meter exchange or your meter needed to be replaced due to age or fault, your old meter has been replaced with an advanced meter.
 
Advanced meters are the next generation of meter technology … no meter readings required. Your energy use data is recorded every 15 minutes and it’s sent back to our systems every day (where mobile coverage allows). If your usage data is not able to be recorded and sent to us remotely, a meter reader will visit every three months to download your energy data manually.

New connection, alteration, or meter replacement?
If you have just had a brand new connection or an exchange (because of something like a solar installation or tariff change) you will receive your first bill approximately 91 business days from the day your meter was installed. For exchanges, we’ll also send you a bill to finalise the energy charges from your old meter. 

Have you chosen aurora+?

You’ll get a welcome email within a week of your meter exchange containing your verification code and your code will give you access to the aurora+ app and all your energy data from the day your meter was installed.
