Metering Contestability Changes

Due to changes in the national electricity rules, from 1 December 2017, retailers are responsible for installing all new and replacement electricity meters in South Australia.

Members can log in to the Technical Knowledge Base and access the Electrical Contractor Handbook, along with some additional information on the metering changes, and a range of other technical information and Australian Standards.
