Thank you for getting back to us!
To confirm - is there an electricity connection currently active at your property, or are you having a new one installed?
Have you requested any other work be completed at the same time as your meter upgrade? For example, have you recently installed a solar system or upgraded your hot water unit?
I'll ask you to send my a quick private message with your AGL account number and address so that I can take a closer look at your account for you.
