Sub-Metering – the what and the why
Understanding the term Sub-Metering is the first step to making the most of this incredible technology that is available to ease your everyday electricity requirements.
Sub-Metering is a term used to describe the implementation of a second private electricity meter (prepaid or conventional) that allows landlords, property management companies, homeowners associations and individual tenants to pay only for the metered electricity that they use. These Sub-Meters work in conjunction with a current municipal or Utility meter without affecting it and without the need to inform the municipality or Utility..
Utility Sub-Metering does not replace your municipal or Utility meter or service provider and is best suited for single, multi tenant or property owners, garden cottage owners, and townhouse complexes. It cannot be installed at your property to replace or circumvent your municipal or Utility electricity service provider. Should you want to convert your municipal or Utility meter to a prepaid electricity meter, MobiPower suggests talking to your electricity service provider to establish what options they have available for you.
