Originally slated to reach its one millionth meter installation in 2024, PLUS ES have met this milestone by deploying tens of thousands of meters each month to help enable businesses across Australia to build our future communities. 

PLUS ES executive general manager of emerging energy solutions Jason Clark said, “This is a huge achievement, and one we have been able to achieve safely, with our customers at the forefront of what we do.

“Installing meters is just one of the many ways we deliver for our customers while we continue to work towards a net zero future. I want to thank our customers, partners, field technicians, suppliers and importantly our staff. It is the great work, and the coordinated efforts of all these teams, that make PLUS ES the business it is today.”

Australia’s smart meter penetration has been driven by the uptake of customer energy resources. The cutting-edge smart meter technology unlocks more accurate and timely energy usage insights and gives more control to customers to enable innovative price, product and retail offerings.

“While this is a great achievement for PLUS ES, the future will be even more exciting as we prepare for an accelerated smart meter rollout. This represents a huge opportunity for PLUS ES to continue to connect communities and empower lives,” Clark said.
