Guide to Half Hourly Electricity


Our helpful guide explains everything you need to know about Half Hourly Electricity

Half hourly electricity is a very different type of contract to standard electricity metering, and something that we can offer to our business customers. For a business that uses a great deal of electricity, a half hourly meter can be a method of driving down commercial electricity rates even further.
A half hour electricity meter does, as the name suggests, take meter readings every thirty minutes. This might not work for every business, but for those that have a large rate of electricity consumption, this can be an extremely cost effective method of reducing the overall annual bill.
