Electricity smart meter upgrade


The ActewAGL Upgrade my meter scheme gives ACT households access to detailed information online about their electricity usage.

With an electricity smart meter you can make more informed choices about how and when you use electricity, including opportunities to reduce your electricity bill. Your new meter sends usage data back to your ActewAGL account, which you can see any time by logging on to your account.

Once your new meter is installed you may be placed on a new pricing plan. This means your charges may be different.


Participants can:

  • switch to new electricity pricing to change the way you’re billed
  • reduce energy use and energy bills
  • improve energy efficiency
  • reduce greenhouse gas emissions.


To be eligible you must:

  • be an ActewAGL account holder
  • live in a residential property in the ACT.

Other conditions may apply.
