Your guide to half hourly meters.

What they are, how they work and how they could benefit your business.

What are half hourly meters?

Half hourly meters (HH meters) are a type of electricity meter that uses Automated Meter Readings (AMR) to capture your energy consumption data every 30 minutes. This means that you’ll get more accurate energy usage information than you would on a standard meter.

What are the advantages of half hourly meters?

If you’re a business owner, then half hourly meters allow you to:

  • Get a better understanding of when you’re using your electricity.

  • See peak consumption times.

  • Find ways to save on your energy bills.

Half hourly meters also benefit energy suppliers as it allows us to have a more accurate view of electricity usage and thus balance the power grid.
