Energy Metering

                         

Smart meters provide accurate consumption data to give you the insight you need to ensure you are paying for what you use and able to budget for.

Half hourly meters have been regulatory mandated for larger businesses since 2017, that fall into certain profile classes. These meters, as the name suggests give half hourly meter reads to your power supplier via AMR (automated meter reading). This data is stored by your power company and is available to access for further analysis.

Sustainable Business Services can help you manage this data to.

  • Validate invoices.

  • Negotiating the right contract

  • Manage usage and implement energy efficiency measures via an energy management system.

Gas and electricity suppliers are required by their licence to take all reasonable steps to roll out smart meters to all their domestic and small business customers by the end of June 2021.

Smart meters are the new generation of gas and electricity meters that are being rolled out to replace old meters.  Smart meters for SME’s are a key component to understanding your data and enabling a more focused plan on reducing your carbon footprint.

  • End estimated billing.

  • Utilise energy management software.

  • Enable more focused reporting for carbon reduction targeting.

  • A more visible understanding of usage to drive behavioural change.

Sustainable Business Services want our customers to pay for what they use and where possible recommend the installation of a Smart Meter or AMR. We can work with you to use this data, report and reduce your carbon footprint..

MOP Contracts:

 

A Meter Operator, or “MOP”, is responsible for installing and maintaining the meter. MOP contracts are required for all Half Hourly Meters. This is a separate from the supply contract which covers the monthly bills. A five year term is a typical duration for a MOP, so it quite common to forget about the MOP during the interim years. Contact us for more information on securing competitive Meter Operator Contracts, we will ensure that all relevant parties are informed of the correct MOP details.
