7 tips to help you save energy

The type of meter that you have installed is no small detail in the business energy procurement process. With many options to consider, selecting the correct choice can save you thousands of pounds. Make a wrong choice and disturbances can ripple through many different channels.

All businesses are keen to avoid inaccurate consumption rates and overcharges, but without regular meter readings being correctly relayed to both the supplier and grid, such risks cannot be minimised effectively. In some cases, data collectors need to be contracted.

    MOP Agreements

    A Meter Operator agreement is a legal requirement for all Half Hourly meters. The agreement covers the maintenance and rental of the meter itself and the technology used to communicate meter readings to your energy supplier. This element may be included within your electricity bill as a separate charge or may be charged annually. If you need a MOP agreement organising then your account manager will be able to look into this for you. We have partnership with accredited meter suppliers that can quote for your Half Hourly meter.
