The benefits of sub-metering

If you use a lot of energy, it may pay for you to sub meter your premises.

Many energy intensive businesses have at least two sub-meters per building. One meter can measure your general electricity use and the other can measure your heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) energy consumption. If you have other equipment that uses significant amounts of energy, you may wish to set up a sub-meter for those too.

Some sub-meters will also give you access to your energy data online, making it easier to better manage your energy consumption.

For more information about the financial viability of sub-metering for your business, consult with an EcoSmart Electrician.

“There’s an old business expression,‘You can’t manage what you don’t measure’. All businesses should measure the cost of their energy use.”
