The Australian and NSW Governments have launched a $36.1 million suite of programs to support uptake of telemetry and metering across NSW.

These initiatives will help realise the benefits of metering and telemetry, create new business opportunities and drive economic growth for NSW.

The new rollout date for Non-Urban Meter Reform is fast approaching on December 1 we wanted to remind DQPs of the requirements for customers with smaller works who are not required to connect to the telemetry network. 

The regulations state that all customers not connected to the telemetry network are required to have a NSW Government approved “telemetry ready” LID installed that can be used as a data logger.  As of September 2021, the only LID that meets this requirement is the YDOC.  Specifications of all the approved LIDs can be found on the DPIE Website

However water users have an option to voluntarily connect to telemetry and therefore become eligible for the telemetry rebate. The rebate is a $975 credit on the water bill and no application is required, it will be applied automatically and will cover approx 4.5 years of future telemetry charges. The current IPART charges for water pricing including telemetry charges can be found here
