How do half-hourly meters work?
If you have a half-hourly meter, it means that your electricity meter is read every half hour. These types of meters are usually needed for larger businesses that require a higher energy demand. By receiving readings every half hour, your energy bills will be more accurate, as they will reflect your actual energy usage over a shorter period of time.
If a business' electricity demand exceeds 100 kilowatts, then the business is legally required to have a half-hourly meter installed to manage large surges in electricity usage.
