ActewAGL—electricity meters

(Question No 2118)

DR FOSKEY asked the Minister for Housing, upon notice, on 1 July 2008:

(1) Does ActewAGL report to Housing ACT if the electricity meter on a property is inaccessible;

(2) Does Housing ACT routinely check the accessibility of electricity meters on their properties;

(3) Can Housing ACT residents claim costs from Housing ACT if they have reported that the meter is inaccessible and no action has been taken, resulting in an overcharge from ActewAGL.

Mr Hargreaves: The answer to the member's question is as follows:

(1) ActewAGL does not differentiate between private and public dwellings for the purpose of meter reading. Issues relating to access are addressed to the account holder. If access is not provided ActewAGL will estimate electricity consumption.

(2) There is no systematic or routine check of access to electricity meters carried out by Housing ACT, however, under the terms and conditions of their tenancy agreements, tenants are expected to maintain the garden and surrounds of the property, including pruning and trimming of plants and shrubs.
