I think most meter readings are done by an independent invoicing companies
now'a'days and not by anyone who understands electrical installations. They
would, more than likely, only look for signs of physical damage to the meter
Our meters are outside on side of house. To work on/replace meter
sockets which tend to corrode after some 30+ years one finds out
approximately when, monthly, the meter is read; this would give
about a 20 day 'window of opportunity'!
Our supplier has offered a 'Read the meter yourself and phone it
in". Haven't tried it cos we are on a budget plan that averages
out monthly payments over the year.
My last meter reading, on an external meter, was done by me in response to a guy
phoning me and asking me to do it. Can't remember whether it was gas or elec.
