How does my meter set-up affect what I pay?

Your meter set-up – or your ‘tariff’ – determines:

  • how much of your supply your lines company (or network) can control
  • how your power is measured – that is, whether your meter can measure your day and night time usage, separately. Or whether your day and night time usage is bundled together.

Generally, the power you use at night will cost less than the power you use in the day. And the power your lines company can control, will cost less than the power they can’t.
