A half hourly electricity (HH) meter has a profile class of “00”. You can see the profile class in your Meter Point Admin Number (MPAN).
Sites with a peak load of 100kW and above need to be equipped with half-hourly meters which record total consumption every half-hour and pass the information to the energy supplier. The data recorded is collected usually by either an onsite download, or via a GSM, SMS, GPRS or telephone line.
Where a half hourly meter is fitted it is mandatory to appoint a Meter Operator (MOP) and Data Collector (DC) for your site. The Electric Board can provide both of these for you as part of our service.
Though it is still possible to switch suppliers when on a half hourly electricity tariff, the process can be a bit more complex and time consuming, but our corporate team have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in this area and will help make the process a simple one for you.
The same as when switching regular supplies we will handle all of the negotiations and paperwork, leaving you free to concentrate on running your business.
