Contestable metering

Contestable metering services are open to competition, meaning you can choose a metering provider other than us for your electricity metering needs. You need to contact your electricity retailer to choose a specific metering provider.

Since the Power of Choice (PoC) reforms were introduced on 1 December 2017, we can no longer provide contestable metering services to customers connected to the main electricity grid, but you can choose us as a contestable metering provider if your property is located in one of the Power of Choice exempt areas (PDF 195.1 kb).
