CitiPower and Powercor, along with Victoria's three other Electricity Distribution businesses have safely installed 500,000 smart meters, and at the same time identified and helped Victorian consumers repair thousands of electricity defects.
Smart Meter installers are experienced and qualified and the smart meter program is being implemented within strict safety guidelines. This is a highly regulated and well managed program being rolled out under the scrutiny of Energy Safe Victoria (ESV) and in accordance with the Victorian Government’s mandate.
The industry is marking the milestone with advertisements outlining the benefits smart meters will provide, and to reassure Victorians that the Program is safe and well managed. The Energy Networks Association has also issued a media release.
