How submetering works.
The responsibility of utility expenses is passed from a common area meter to another meter dedicated to each individual unit.
Unitowners/tenants gain control of their individual usage.
Encourage positive tenant behavior by charging each individual for the energy they consume.
Benefits of submetering to building owners and property managers.
First and foremost, smart submetering systems give you more insight into your electrical and water consumption. The innovation and integration of communication channels have allowed for quick access to data and the ability to make smarter decisions, faster. There is also the ability to scale the level of control offered to property managers and building owners based on individual requirements.
Control = Savings
Savings come in the form of control and responsibility. By submetering, you are delegating the control of the utility expenses from the building’s common area to each individual unit owner or tenant. Through responsible energy, water, and/or gas management, all individuals now have the ability to reduce their own costs and take responsibility.
Big DATA = Better Decisions
Access to data is invaluable. It allows for smarter and better information to guide smarter decisions. This is relevant for capital projects, as well as individual hydro, water, and gas usage.
Simply Metering, also offers meters for various measurement and verification projects to help showcase ROI on other energy-efficiency projects.
No longer do you have to worry calculating the utility usage based on square footage, or worry about paying for your neighbour’s consumption. With a smart metering solution, you have the ability to meter and monitor usage all the way down to an individual circuit.
