Your customer rights

Have questions about your rights as an energy customer? You'll find your answers here.

Our Customer Charter and our commitments to you

Understand your rights when it comes to issues, complaints, feedback and privacy. You can view full details of our Customer Charter in your contract booklet.

Self service meter read

Submitting your own meter read allows you to avoid estimated bills. Customers who have a basic meter can provide their own meter read, then request an adjustment to an estimated bill.


More information is available on our self service meter read page.


If you’ve submitted a meter read that’s been rejected, you can request a review of our decision. More information on raising a concern or lodging a dispute can be found on our complaints page.

Receiving energy concessions, rebates and grants

Eligible customers can receive a variety of government-funded energy concessions that we may be able to administer on behalf of the state government.
