Save On Your Half Hourly Electricity Prices

by Simon Thompson

If your firm or organisation has half hourly electricity meters installed then it is possible that you can save with cheaper half hourly electricity prices.

Not every firm will have these meters installed but large users of electricity will and they offer an automated process of monitoring energy use and accurate billing.

That’s because your firm’s energy use is recorded every 30 minutes, hence the term half hourly meters, with the data being sent to your provider.

In addition to accurate bills, this data can be used by a potential new provider to offer a tariff and deal that will meet your needs and be cheaper.

Half hourly electricity suppliers

These meters mean that half hourly electricity suppliers will benefit from identifying the peak periods of electricity use in your business.

Not only will this help them offer a bespoke deal but also help your business become more energy-efficient because they may offer help in reducing your overall energy usage with a consultancy

This type of consultancy is growing in popularity and will offer real savings to help reduce your bills even further. The consultant may also look at reducing your gas and water use too.

In addition, the location of your business, the type of industry you are in and the number of employees will also have an impact on the rates being offered.

Attraction for half hourly electricity deals

The big attraction for half hourly electricity deals is that the provider will be able to use the information for delivering better prices than a firm who does not have half hourly meters fitted.

If your firm has moved into a new building or premises, then you need to check whether a half hourly meter has been installed and the designation is on the front of the meter which will have the letter ‘S’ followed with 00 in the top left-hand corner.

There are various ways of finding half hourly electricity providers and you could contact suppliers directly or use an online comparison site to find what the average market rate for your business needs will be.

However, the downside to a comparison site is that it may not be searching the entire marketplace, so there may be better deals and providers available that you will miss out on.
