Understanding your meter


A quick guide to electricity meters


Your meter keeps track of how much electricity you’ve used, to help us bill you correctly. 

OK. So what meter do you have? 


We have two types of electricity meters for business here in the Territory. 

Smart meters
If you have a smart meter, its likely three-phase.

Basic meter
The most common in the Territory, it records electricity as you use it.

Where is my meter hiding?


In most businesses, it’s in a common area, or near the entrance. Some neighbouring commercial customers group their meters together in an easy to access common area.


Updating your records? Request your meter data from the last two years.


All we need from you are three bits of information.

Your name and business name
Your ABN and business address
Your NMI (this can be found on you latest bill).
