New Zealand's smart meter installation reaches 1 million

23 Jan 2014
New Zealand’s installation of smart meters has reached over 1 million in homes and businesses.

The growth comes after competition between the major energy retailers, despite the move not being mandated in the country.

Compared to other countries, consumers are not being charged to have smart meters installed, resulting in increased success and demand.

Government officials in Australia are said to be looking to New Zealand to adapt their strategy and hope to see similar success in smart meters.
