National Meter Reading Day

An urgent reminder to everyone to read your gas and electricity meters on Thursday 31 March 2022 in advance of the higher energy price cap coming into effect on 1 April 2022.

Meter readings need to be submitted to your energy supplier the same day. If you are unable to do this, you should take a photo of your meter as evidence.

Roni Marsh, money advice team leader, explains why everyone should do this as a priority:

“It is very important you submit your meter readings on 31 March to ensure you are not charged the higher price for gas and electricity used at the lower rates. The higher fuel prices will see energy bills increase by over 50% for some households, so everything you can do to save money will help.”
