Electricity Consumption Metering

Consumer metering safety requirements

On 1 December 2017 metering arrangements and rules changed as part of what is known as 'Power of Choice'.

These new changes create flexibility and allow retailer and metering providers (the installer) to offer a wide range of electricity products.

TasNetworks no longer install consumer meters. They still own existing meters and will help in the transition phase.

Metering is now the responsibility of the retailer and their appointed Metering coordinator/provider.

If you  have any queries about the new requirements contact CBOS by email cbosinfo@justice.tas.gov.au or ring 1300 654 499.

Most of the meter installation safety requirements have not changed however there are some changes to the processes through the Metering Provider.  Areas of possible change are the:

  • location of meters in an installation
  • provision and ownership of Current Transformer (CT) metering.

Contact the relevant Metering Provider to discuss the requirements.

If you wish to know more about the Retail side of Power of Choice contact the relevant Retailer.
