At Northern Ireland Electricity (NIE), we read everyone’s electricity meter every three months.
We pass these readings on to your electricity supplier and they send you a bill. If you are a pay-as-you-go customer, this information is used to update your account.
Some electricity suppliers will ask you to submit meter readings in between our visits. You can either do this directly with them or with us. We will still call at your home or business even if you do give regular readings to your supplier.
