As a result of P272 legislation, introduced in 2015, all meters with 05 – 08 profile classes were upgraded to 00 Half Hourly electricity meters.
Billing for these meters can be complex and many businesses have found themselves caught out by unscrupulous brokers, who haven’t been transparent about what charges would occur.
Unlike residential (01-02) & SME (03-04) electric meters, Half Hourly electricity prices can be sold in various ways, including fixed, part pass through & fully pass through. The Electric Board offers it’s customers a fully transparent explanation of all options available to ensure you know what you are paying and when.
Various factors can affect the cost of electricity, including global affairs, weather, the contract term, 3rd party costs and a host of other influencers. 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 The Electric Board have a wealth of knowledge and expertise in this area and will help make the process a simple one for you.
