Power meters

Why do I need a power meter?

All residential and commercial properties connected to our Northpower network need electricity meter equipment installed.

This is to measure your electricity use so you can be correctly charged by your energy retailer (unless arrangements have been made to have a non-metered supply).

If you export power to the grid, then you’ll need an import/export meter.

Who provides the meter equipment?

Your energy retailer manages the metering equipment provider (MEP) and installation process and can help with any enquiries. Ongoing maintenance and security of metering equipment becomes your responsibility.

Multi-tenanted buildings will often have combined meter stations. Each meter needs to be clearly labelled with the flat number or tenant area.
