Reading your electricity meter

Whether you are on a Smart Meter or not, it’s important to familiarise yourself with your electricity meter, especially for gathering those all-important meter readings for shopping the best deal.

How to read your electricity meter

  • Many properties are now fitted with a Smart Meter, meaning manual reading of the meter is not necessary. More information on Smart Meters can be found on the British Gas website.
  • If you don’t have a Smart Meter fitted, this British Gas guide will help you take an accurate meter reading.
  • Should you experience a problem with your electricity meter please contact your utility provider.
