What business gas meter should I get?
Each gas meter offers benefits for different industries and businesses. Our advisors will help you choose a meter that is likely to save you the largest amount of money on your gas bills.
Smart Gas Meters
These are currently the most popular meters for businesses. They offer accurate meter readings that are automatically sent to your supplier.
Standard Gas Meters
Standard meters measure unit rates against your usage. The cost is the same for every unit of energy used if you’re on a fixed rate tariff. You will have to submit regular gas meter readings to ensure accurate billing.
Multi-rate meters offer two or three different unit rates depending on the time of day. Two-rate meters usually charge a cheaper rate in the evenings. Three-rate meters are similar with the addition of a separate weekend rate. These meters are popular with restaurants, pubs and other late-night businesses. Specific times are set by each supplier and largely depend on which part of the country your business operates in.
What can delay my business gas meter installation?
When there is a delay in installing a business gas meter, it usually means there’s a large amount of site work that needs to be completed. To ensure a speedy installation, our team can get involved in any site works to avoid any long lead times.
What information do I need for a new business gas meter installation?
We will need your MPRN number and the pressure of the service installed. You can retrieve this information from the Distribution Network Operator or the end of your supply pipe.
What is an MPAN Number?
A Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN), also recognised as your Gas Supply Number is a unique number for your building’s gas meter.
