Hi Randal, I am a level 2 electrician and do this type of work. I will have a few questions to be able to give you a quote but need to start with: Why do you want to install a smart meter? Who is your current electricity retailer?

Looking to monitor my electricity usage. Currently with Alinta energy. In addition I have some other minor electrical work around the house if that would interest you.
I am not aware that retailers will supply the daily data, so more questions:
have you made inquiries with /alints to change to a smart meter?
did they say the a smart meter can be installed?
as far as i know smart meters will be installed when there is a reason such as solar, off peak hot water 3 phase upgrade or your meter comes on the list to be changed.
Do you have a solar system?
How do you want to monitor the usage?
Have data often enough so you can plot a graph?
Daily Use?
The only grahped usage i have seen is after a solar install where 2 current transformer are installed to monitor electricity from the grid and electricity produced by the solar syetem, an ap takes careo of the graphing
