What is a half hourly meter?

As the name suggests, a half-hour meter, or HH meter, is an electricity meter designed to send accurate, up-to-date readings to your energy supplier at half hourly intervals.

Designed especially for business, half hourly electricity meters are connected to a phone line to automatically send these updates to your energy provider, so you don’t have to worry about taking regular readings.

To help ensure your business is working as energy efficiently as possible, these meters can provide a detailed breakdown of exactly how much energy you are using and when you are using it.

Does my business need a half hourly electricity meter?

If your business is a high energy user and has a maximum demand of at least 100kW in any half hour period, you must have a half hourly meter fitted as standard.

The types of businesses that require half hourly meter charges are usually the more energy intensive ones, such as assembly plants, department stores, manufacturing plants and printers.

You’ll also have the option to have a half hourly electricity meter installed if your business has a maximum demand of 70kW or more in any given half hour period.

If you think your business has a high energy demand, a half hourly meter could save you money as the accuracy and regularity of the data supplied to your provider means half hourly electricity prices are much more tailored to your needs and usage than regular pricing.

How can I check if I have a half hourly electricity meter?

To check whether your business is already using a half hourly meter, take a look at the ‘S number’ on a recent energy bill.

The ‘S number’ will be shown as a small box containing six different multi-digit numbers in a box, if the top left number reads ‘00’ then your business is on a half hourly meter.
