An electricity meter keeps track of how much power you’re using.
Electricity is used by the kilowatt-hour (kWh), more commonly known as a ‘unit’. One unit is the equivalent of 1000 watts (kW) switched on for one hour.
There are two types of meters available in New Zealand: Smart meters and analogue meters. Smart meters are progressively rolling out throughout New Zealand and offer a range of benefits compared to their analogue counterparts.
