Hi @beneik,

 

Every connection to the national electricity network is given its own identification number - the National Meter Identifier (NMI). You'll need this number if you change your electricity retailer.

The NMI is used to:

  • identify your supply address
  • identify the meters and meter types at your connected address
  • make sure you're billed for the right amount of energy.

Your NMI stays the same unless the location of your electricity network connection point changes. For example, if a building is demolished and a new meter is installed.

The NMI is associated with an electricity network connection point, so when you move you'll have a new NMI at your new location.
