Meter Readings

SSE have a simpler approach to meter reading submissions. It’s not quite as techy or transportable as the app’s that other suppliers offer but it’s straight to the point and easy to remember.

You can submit these in 3 easy ways

  • Submit them on the online form - it’s as simple as going to their website: https://www.ssebusinessenergy.co.uk/submit-meter-reading/ and filling out the form at the bottom of the page. Make sure you have all your information to hand as this method doesn’t save any account details for next time unless you make an account.

    “It is essential that any readings provided by you are as accurate as they can be so that we can use them effectively”


  • Create online account and add them directly - This is a good alternative to having paper billing. It allows business to download copies of their previous bills, see a good overview of their spending and to keep all the necessary details in one place.

    SSE boast their online accounts give you everything you need to manage your business energy, offering you to view your bills and submit readings, manage your supply portfolio and run reports on your consumption.

  • Call them - on 0345 725 2526 and submit your meter reading that way. It’s a handy method for anyone who prefers to deal with things over the phone or isn’t too keen on doing everything online.

  • Automated meter-reading and accurate billing
  • The ability to improve your energy management through better understanding of how your business consumes energy
  • Up-to-date billing information and data provided directly from the meter
