Meter Reading

We are committed to providing accurate and timely bills. Most NorthWestern Energy customers have automated meter reading technology, which allows us to obtain actual meter readings from a company vehicle. However, at times we may need to manually read some meters.

To ensure the safety of service personnel please keep animals restrained or confined when a NorthWestern Energy employee is at your property; clear ice/snow from walks and steps; have meters free of obstacles or debris; keep the path to the meter free of hazards; if there is ice buildup on your gas meter, call NorthWestern Energy.

If a meter reader is unable to safely access a meter to obtain a read, your energy usage will be estimated.
