Multi-site meters

Larger multi-site businesses with complex setups will often require a multifaceted energy solution. This typically takes the form of a multi-site meter, which allows for larger businesses, who operate from a number of different locations, to more easily manage the energy that they’re using.

Like with most businesses, it’s important for larger multi-site businesses to switch their energy contracts whenever the opportunity presents itself to ensure that they are getting the most competitive deals possible. However, having a multi-meter solution across different sites can make switching business energy a more complex and time consuming process – especially when tariffs are due for renewal at different times.

Staying on top of multi-site business energy contracts

Businesses who fail to properly manage their energy deal and switch whenever possible run the risk of being transferred on to inflated deemed rates – which are put in place for businesses who are not under a formally agreed energy contract with a supplier. Given the average size of multi-site businesses, and the total amount of energy that they will typically consume, deemed rates can add up and get particularly expensive. This is why properly managing your business’s energy contracts is so important – particularly for larger businesses.

One way that some multi-meter businesses choose to stay on top of their energy contracts is to stick with same supplier for all of their meters in an effort to simplify the billing process. Whereas this may be true to some extent, it often means that a number of sites will not be receiving the best possible energy deal available to them.

Alternatively, some multi-site businesses will choose to secure a different supplier for each individual site. Obviously, this can make billing a more complicated process, but it does mean that each site can secure an energy contract with the supplier who offers the best rates, saving the whole business money.
