How do I sign up for natural gas or LPG bottled gas?
Basically, this is gas in a bottle. So even if your house isn’t set up with gas mains, you can still get the good stuff. If you have your electricity with us, we’ll make LPG even cheaper.
Sign up for LPG in less than 3 minutes.
This is gas on tap, great if your house has all the pipes and gas mains installed and you're ready to hook straight up.

Metering & Usage
There are a number of different types of electricity and gas meters. Some are digital meters and others show the reading using old school dials.
On electricity meters the numbers on a meter represent kilowatt hours (or kWh) of electricity used. Kilowatt hours are often referred to as “units”.
On gas meters, the numbers represent the volume of gas used measured in cubic meters (or m³). We then convert this to kilowatt hours for billing.
This looks very much like the odometer in a car.
Read the numbers from left to right, ignoring any number that is either coloured red or looks distinctly different to the majority. These are not used for billing purposes.
Smart Electricity and Gas Meters and Readings
These meters communicate directly with our billing system so we don’t need to send anyone round to yours. All helping you know it’s definitely uninvited relatives outside, not us. You’ll get an accurate bill each month and we can also take automatic readings if you move properties.
You shouldn’t ever need to read the meter yourself, but if that’s what pushes your buttons then here’s how to do it.
How to read your Electricity Meter
Your Smart Meter's screen will automatically change its display every eight seconds. To stop the screen changing, just press the ‘SELECT' button.
Your meter reading will appear on the screen.
Test pattern: This can be ignored. It's just the meter doing a display check.
Your meter reading(s): Depending on your meter, you could see 24hr, CTRL, NITE, DAY, some figures and kWh. The figures are how much electricity has been used in this billing cycle.
Other meter reading(s): The meter reading for each plan will appear one after the other for properties with more than one price plan.
Current load: How much electricity is being used (in kilowatts) right now.
Signal strength: This figure shows how strong the signal is to wirelessly send us the usage data.
Date: This displays the current date.
Time: This shows the current time.
Disconnected: This will be displayed if the electricity to the meter or property has been disconnected. Usually we'd let you know beforehand unless we need to disconnect the electricity for safety reasons.
Press and hold the button above “OK” for 4 seconds, the LCD screen will turn on and the reading will be displayed.
The LCD screen will remain blank to save battery usage. To see the meter reading, press and hold the button above “OK” for 4 seconds, the LCD screen will turn on and the reading will be displayed.
