Benefits of self meter reads
Ever looked at your energy bill and been surprised?
Sometimes, the reason for this is that we’ve had to estimate your usage because a meter read couldn’t be completed.
If you’ve got a basic meter, the meter read generally comes from an authorised meter reader who goes to your property and notes down where your usage is at.
But sometimes, getting that meter read can be kind of challenging.
Maybe your pet won’t let us near the meter, or maybe you can’t leave your gate unlocked.
If safe, clear access to your meter is an issue, you can contact Origin to organise a special read time OR you can do a self meter read.
Yep! You can do it yourself.
The self-meter read takes 5 minutes and we walk you through it. You can do it when it suits you.
Oh one thing. Once every 12 months an authorised meter reader must read your meter in person at your property.
So that’s it. Read your own meter to help avoid estimated bills – you’ll be keeping it real.
