Multi-Site Energy Meters
Large businesses with properties in multiple locations have a choice when managing a portfolio of energy contracts. Each occupied business property will have at least one supply ID (an MPAN for electricity and MPRN for gas), resulting in a long list of different energy supply points.
One option is to manage the contract for electricity and gas for each supply point separately in individual agreements with business energy suppliers. In this approach, your facilities team will be managing an extensive list of contacts that will need either renegotiating or switching at the end of each fixed-term period.
The alternative approach uses a multi-site meter where multiple properties are consolidated into one business energy tariff.
What is a multi-site energy meter?
Confusingly, a multi-site energy meter is a process, not a physical device that records energy use.
A multi-site energy meter is where you add multiple electricity or gas supply points into a single contract with a business electricity or business gas supplier.
