Why is Western Power installing advanced meters? What are the benefits?

Advanced meters are commonly used internationally and in other states of Australia as part of the advancements being made to electricity networks. They also enable early detection of faults and supply issues, providing an extra layer of safety. Our advanced metering program will bring us in line with other energy networks in Australia and around the world.

Advanced meters enable emerging products, services and technologies that provide electricity consumer benefits such as owning electric vehicles, more flexible plans and options, and the ability for you to track electricity being sent back across the grid.
