How much does a Smart Meter cost?

Smart meters cost around $500 (there could be labour charges on top of this) to install. For retail customers, this cost is typically worn by the retailers and rolled into other charges.
You may have to pay upfront for a smart meter if you have recently had solar power installed, or if you are building a new home.
