How can I read my digital meter?


The associated codes for reading the MK7A2 digital meter on AGL's website are simply wrong according to the installation at my home!


It states code 3 is 'Net export Wh Total' - but this is actually the total import figure from the supply.


It states code 13 is 'Net import Wh total' - but it is actually the total amount of solar feed-in to the supply.


It states code 7 is ''Export Wh Load (Gross Solar in case of PFIT)' - but it is actuially the controlled load tariff 33 for the hot water system.


I needed 2 power consecutive bills to actually work this out.


The other codes (43, 53 and 63') don't seem to correspond to anything logical.


It's taken me ages to figure this - surely I haven't been to only one going insane over it.


If I'm wrong, please explain. If I'm right...this isn't good enough AGL. 


Look forward to any responses.

we have just been updated with a smartmeter 7c how can I tell my usage to allow me to use the read your meter part of the website? I can see the 3 reading and the 13 one but that seems to be all the information it gives me.

cheers John
