How does electricity supply work for my premises?
You’ve acquired your premises to start a new business and you need to get electricity installed. First of all, you need to get a cable fitted in to get the electricity supply and you need a meter to measure your electricity supply in order to be billed for your electricity consumption. The meter needs to be installed at your premises. You then also want to obtain the cheapest electricity rate possible.
Getting electricity is simple right?
Not quite. The meter works by sending a signal to collect data from the meter operator. The meter operator aggregates that data and maintains the meter reading and that’s how you get your bill. This is a service you usually have to pay for.
Why is it so complicated?
To obtain a meter, you need to have a contract and you want to get the best possible rate from your contract. So as well as trying to obtain a meter you could end up spending valuable time seeking out the best contract rates. There is then the hidden cost of having the meter installed. To add to the complication, you cannot obtain a meter without an electricity contact. Then if you have an additional sites you will have to do this all again. So how can you run your business efficiently if your time is spent trying to procure your electricity?
