Our digital meters, also known as ‘smart’ meters, are helping to modernise Victoria’s electricity network – by reducing costs and laying the foundation for a more energy-efficient future.
Roll-out of this technology is paving the way for ‘smart grids’, which are helping us to manage the complex energy flows generated by solar power systems and other renewable energy sources.
Digital meters record electricity usage by the half-hour and transmit this information back to us four times a day. As a result, we’re better able to monitor and manage your supply, and respond more quickly if there’s an outage.
Although digital meters are usually read remotely, AusNet Services will always need physical access at times for maintenance and auditing purposes. To assist with this, we ask that you provide clear and safe access to your meter at all times.
Some helpful tips for maintaining meter access are provided below.
For frequently asked questions and information on how to read your meter, please see the Metering section on our FAQs page.
If you would like to know more about your energy habits, AusNet Services can help you to track your electricity usage and costs over time – and to budget accordingly, if that’s your goal.

In home devices can be used to link appliances, or to assist you to better access and monitor your electricity consumption, which may help you better manage your energy usage.
