NMI stands for National Metering Identifier. It’s a unique number for the electricity connection at your address.
Electricity providers can choose where they want to put the NMI on their bills. This means the NMI won’t be in the same place for everybody.
To help you find your NMI, it is:
- often close to your meter data information on your bill
- called ‘NMI’
- written as numbers, or letters and numbers
- at least 10 characters long.
Example of how an NMI might look on a bill
|Your electricity supply details|
|Plan name||Sample plan name|
|Supply address||1 Example Street, NSW, 1234|
|Billing period||DD/MM/YYYY to DD/MM/YYYY|
More about your NMI
Your NMI isn’t the same as your meter number.
We use the NMI to get information about how much energy you use in your home or business. We get this information securely from the Australian Energy Market Operator, with your permission.
In Queensland, your NMI will usually start with two letters followed by 9 numbers.
