Currently, Smartbox gives WEL detailed feedback about usage and the network, allowing us to supply power more efficiently and address any issues without customers needing to contact us. Mouse over dots for the full story.

Smartbox today


Smartboxes are WEL’s first step towards building a smarter network for future generations. As more homes and businesses get smart boxes, you’ll be able to view your electricity usage either by an in-home LCD display or via a secure website. Once this feature is available for you to use, you'll be able to:

  • Manage your energy and electricity bills
  • Gain instantaneous feedback on how much power you are using in your home
  • Set alarms to alert you if your power usage is too high
  • Set energy efficient appliances to interact with your smart meter to alter usage to suit your lifestyle and manage electricity costs
  • Set a timer to turn off 'non-critical' appliances when not in use
  • Dynamically select suitable electricity tariff plans through your electricity retailer
  • Experience better supply of power to your home/business and fewer outages
