Also known as HH meters, a half hourly electric meter is a special kind of business energy meter that sends updated readings to the energy supplier every half hour via a phone line. There’s no need to know how to read your half hourly meter as it automatically provides your supplier with accurate and up-to-date energy usage readings, all without the bother of taking and submitting meter readings manually.
These automated half hourly readings are the main difference between half hourly and non half hourly meters, and mean that you’ll be billed accurately so you’ll only ever pay for the energy you use, alongside any other standing charges, taxes and government levies that usually appear on your bills.
As half hourly electricity readings are very detailed, they also have the benefit of making it far easier to identify the periods when your business is using the most electricity. The information provided by a half hour meter can be a huge help if you’re looking to reduce your usage and become more energy efficient.
