Carbon footprint and energy costs should be major considerations for you if you run your own business.
Your energy bill will depend largely on the size and type of your business, the number of employees and its location. Taking steps to reduce the cost of this bill will make a massive difference to your company’s budget.
Providing regular meter readings each month is a more accurate way for your electricity supplier to bill you for what you have used.
There are different electricity meters and which you choose depends on your company’s requirements.You should first consider your new energy rate. It’s either:
If your business doesn’t have a commercial energy supply line, install a new meter a month before the new line is installed. It can take around three months to have a new line installed if there isn’t one already, and around two weeks to have a new meter installed.
To install a meter you’ll need your Meeting Point Administration Number (MPAN). This will be on your latest energy bill but you can call the supplier for it.
To organise electricity meter installations or to have an existing meter reconnected, speak to your supplier.
