If you encounter any issues with your metre, the best course of action is to contact your electricity distributor. They are responsible for maintaining and operating the electricity network in your area, which includes the metreing infrastructure. They will be able to assist you with any problems related to the metreing of your electricity usage, such as inaccurate readings or faulty equipment. While Peace Power, as a retailer, manages your account and billing information, they do not have control over the physical metre itself. Therefore, it’s important to reach out to your electricity distributor directly for any metre-related concerns.

An energy retailer and an energy distributor are two distinct entities involved in the delivery of energy to end-users, such as households and businesses.

An energy retailer is a company that buys energy from the wholesale market and sells it directly to consumers. They offer various plans, including fixed-rate and variable-rate pricing options.

In contrast, an energy distributor is responsible for transporting energy from the source, such as a power plant or natural gas pipeline, to consumers. They own and operate the infrastructure, like power lines and gas pipelines, that are required to maintain the energy grid. The government regulates energy distributors to ensure that they provide reliable service and maintain safety standards.

A rolling blackout, also known as rotational load shedding or planned power outages, is an emergency procedure used by power companies to manage the supply of electricity across the grid when the demand exceeds the supply. This can occur during extreme weather conditions, such as heatwaves or severe cold snaps, when consumers use more electricity for cooling or heating than usual. It can also happen if there is a power generation shortfall due to unexpected power station shutdowns or a deficit in fuel supply
