What are half hourly meters?

Half hourly meters are used to give precise energy usage information in premises that consistently demand over 100kva. A type of advanced smart meter that connects through your phone line, half hourly meters allow energy usage in large and energy intensive industries to be accurately recorded. Half hourly meters allow you to see what time of the day you use the most energy, and potentially reduce your energy bills if these periods fall outside of peak times.

After new P272 regulation rules were introduced in 2015, the majority of businesses have switched to half hourly meters, although full implementation will not be complete until 2017.
