New Smart Meter Regulations From 1 December
From 1 December new rules apply to the installation of electricity meters in states other than Western Australia, as Rule No 12 2015 of the Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC) National Electricity Amendment comes into effect. 1 This rule provides that no further ‘basic’ electricity meters will be installed and that all new meters will be ‘advanced’ meters, sometimes referred to as ‘smart’ meters. These meters will be installed by metering providers rather than electricity retailers themselves.
