What happens if I don’t submit meter readings to my energy supplier?
It’s not compulsory for most tariffs, but it’ll probably benefit you if you do. But there are some tariffs where submitting a meter reading is compulsory within a set period of time. If you don't supply the necessary reading, you could be moved to a different, and more expensive, tariff.
For most tariffs, if you don't provide a meter reading, your supplier will most likely estimate your energy usage, then bill you based on that best guess. This means there’s a chance you’ll be paying more than you need to. Regular meter readings keep your bill as accurate as possible.
