Meridian Energy is asking customers to be vigilant for scammers after reports of hoax phone calls from people claiming to be from Meridian.

If you receive a call from people saying they are from Meridian asking for your credit card or bank account details and you do not have an outstanding account with Meridian, please do not give out any of your personal information. Hang up and call us directly on 0800 496 496 (Meridian Energy customer contact centre).

Read meter

Sending us a meter reading

If you have a smart meter then we get your reading automatically, but if you don't have a smart meter then we aim to read your meter:

  • in most urban areas, every second month
  • in most rural areas, every 3–6 months.

How to read your meter

There are three kinds of meters, and you may have any or all of them at your place. Here’s how to read them. Make sure you send the readings from all your meters at once.

If you’re having trouble reading your meter, contact us.
