A Meter Point Administration Number (MPAN) is a registration number unique to each domestic and business electricity meter. Energy suppliers use your MPAN to identify your energy supply point when organising electricity tariffs.
You can find your MPAN on a recent electricity bill, and it should be displayed in this format:
By looking at your MPAN, an electricity supplier can identify your Profile Class. This helps to indicate the amount of electricity your business is likely to consume within a 24 hour period. At SwitchMyBusiness.com, we use this to easily provide businesses with accurate electricity quotes.
A profile class is a number assigned to your electricity meter which indicates how much electricity you are likely to use within a 24 hour period. You can find your profile class by looking at the first two digits of your electricity MPAN.
Classes 01 and 02 identify domestic electricity meters, whilst classes 03 up to 08 are found within non-domestic (or business) properties. Class 00 indicates that a property is using a half-hourly meter which is typically used for larger businesses with high electricity consumptions.
This profile class is used for small business with lower energy consumption, with a standard rate per unit of energy.
Small businesses with an Economy 7 meter fall under this category. Tariffs for this class provide peak and off-peak prices per unit of energy.
Maximum Demand (MD) customers are businesses that use Profile Classes 05-08. What distinguishes these businesses from other energy customers is that they use meters which measure peak demand during a set period.
However, Maximum Demand customers are now being moved onto half-hour energy meters under the P272 regulation set by Ofgem. These customers will now have their business energy monitored through half-hourly meter readings.
Businesses using profile class 00 are high electricity consumption customers, and they use half-hourly meters. These business meters provide accurate half-hourly readings to energy suppliers.
Your MPAN should be visible on any recent electricity bill, but if you’re having trouble finding it, you can get in contact with your Distributor Network Operator (DNO). A DNO will be responsible for the electricity distribution network in your area, and they will be able to provide you with the details we need to switch your business electricity tariff.
