Energy retailers are rolling out Smart Meters across New Zealand, with around 1.6 million smart meters installed by April 2015. These electronic meters provide a more accurate bill to customers, and removes the need for regular visits to customers properties.


There are multiple energy retailers and other companies using meters that Wells are working with on Smart Meter deployment projects. To assist these companies with the Smart Meter roll-out, Wells Meter Technical Services provides Category 1, Category 2, Pre-pay and Post-pay installation services of Smart Meters.


To complete the vast range of smart meter installations, we use Con-X - a proven mobility platform developed by e-merge Data Solutions that met all quality, safety and industry compliance requirements of both Wells operations managers and the clients.


Due to Wells establishing solid partnerships and delivering on what it promises, The Wells Meter Technical team has experienced significant growth - from 8 electricians in late 2008 to over 80 nationwide by 2013 - and still continuing to grow and spread its services throughout New Zealand.
