Hi Nmr2212,

 

That's a fair question!

 

So that I can give you a relevant answer, can I first ask if you have a smart meter at your property currently?

 

Kind regards,

Hi Nmr2212,

 

Thanks for clarifying!

 

There'll be no need to specify this - our system will pick this up automatically! The $165 fee quoted is worst case scenario and usually involves a technician physically attending your property. If this reconfiguration can be done remotely, the fee should be substantially less.

 

Kind regards,
