What is the Difference Between and Standard and Half Hourly Meter?

A standard meter simply records the energy usage and presents a cumulative view of units used to date. The meter needs to be manually read and recorded to generate bills and invoices.

A half hourly meter is automatically read every 30 minutes (hence the name half hourly) and the data is transmitted back to your current supplier. The data is mainly used to generate bills and calculate tariffs. However it can also be automatically fed into energy management software to produce analysis and reports.

The meter is designated by the first two numbers being "00" and is sometimes referred to as a 00 meter. Standard meters begin with 01 or 02 (mainly for residential properties) or 03, 04, 05, 06, 07 and 08 for lower consumption businesses.
