Who has a digital meter and how they’re rolled out is different from state to state across Australia. In some states the roll out of digital meters is mandatory. For example in Victoria, all electricity meters have now been replaced with digital ones as part of a joint Government and industry initiative for residential and small business customers. However, in some states it’s up to the home or business owner to decide if they’d like a digital meter installed. Head to your State Government’s website to learn more about their position on digital meters where you live.
