In relation to meter reading, NIE who manage the meters, will continue to arrange meter readers to call to your homes, but if your meter is located inside your property, they will no longer enter your property to read the meter. Instead they will leave a card with instructions on how you can submit your own meter reading online, by phone or via email. If you do not submit a reading, you should expect an estimated bill for this quarter. If your meter is located outside your premises the meter readers will continue to call and read your electricity meter as normal. If you need to contact NIE directly their Customer Helpline number on 03457 643 643
