How do I reconnect my smart prepayment (PAYG) meter after being disconnected?

Different meters have different ways of doing this.

You can also reconnect your electricity supply via your In-Home Display (also know as a PPMID) with certain models.

Reconnecting supply via your meter

  1. Make sure any sensitive or important electrical devices are turned off and / or unplugged before reconnecting your meter.
