Annual Read

Just had a bloke around to read the gas and electric meters, he said it was for an ‘annual read’? Is this still a thing, even though we do our own? Am I assuming it’s to make sure customers aren’t defrauding? Do customers still get visits if they have a smart meter fitted too?

@raymond4871 You are absolutely right, there are meter readings that will go round all properties from time to time to make sure that the meters have been read. This happens independently of you providing readings to us, this is really important for those who are unable to read their meters and to make sure meter readings are being submitted properly.
