Submit your own meter read
If you have a basic meter, you can submit your own read and request that your bill be adjusted based on the meter read you provide.
Submit your readings with the AGL Energy app on your smartphone.
Simply log in to My Account, select 'Usage' and then select the 'fuel type' you wish to enter a read for.
If you have more than one account, you can enter meter readings for both.
Have the account details, meter number and register number ready, then get in touch with our customer service team to submit your reading.
If your meter read was not accepted, it may be because:
- The read was too high or too low compared to the last official read
- The read has been taken too far in the past
- The photo provided wasn't clear or accurate
- No photo was provided when requested
- The meter number was incorrect in a different way
- Our records indicate the meter is faulty, disconnected, or pending replacement
Dispute a rejected meter read
