Metering for business

Whether it's installing and maintaining your business meters as your Meter Operator, or designing a solution to optimise your metering strategy through sub-metering - we're here to support your business.

Metering for business comes with a few extra challenges (as well as opportunities) than it does for residential properties.

If you’re managing energy for a business site with Half Hourly (HH) or Automated Meter Reading (AMR) meters, there are a few different things you need to have in place.

We provide half-hourly and AMR metering services throughout the country – so we can cover all your half-hourly and AMR meters, and sub-metering contract needs.

Contract with an appointed Meter Operator (MOp)

Your MOp is responsible for fitting, operating and maintaining your meters. So if something goes wrong, you can be sure that your meters can be fixed quickly and properly to limit disruption to your business.

If you’re not sure if you have one or not, you may be on what’s called a “default” contract. These are usually more expensive, so it’s best to contact your energy supplier to find out who your MOp is and their contact details.


This breaks down your energy consumption to specific units, buildings, pieces of equipment and even individual tenants, so you can apportion accurate costs and identify where to reduce your energy consumption and help make return on investment decisions.

This is useful for a wide variety of different types of organisations, and can be tailored to as much or little detail as needed.

Our highly experienced metering team can advise on the right technology for your site, fit the chosen meters and maintain them throughout the lifecycle. We’ll make sure you (or your client’s) half-hourly and AMR metering experience is a positive one – right from the word go. We’ve made the whole process as simple and manageable as possible – and we’ll support you from start to finish.

Our customer portfolio’s are diverse - across every corner of the Private and Public sector from High Street Retail, Manufacturing, Renewable Energy, Police forces to National Transport. With both single and multiple sites, we’re flexible no matter how large or small the project.
