What meters are available for businesses?
Single-rate meters – With a single rate meter you will be billed at a single rate for the electricity consumed, regardless of time or day of the week. This will be beneficial to consumers who use their electricity during the day, in places like schools or offices.
Two-rate meters – This is a meter that will provide two dates depending on the day and time it is consumed. The day and night rate seen on these meters usually have cheaper rates during the night. Users would need to plan when to use appliances such as washing machines so they can save money long-term.
Three-rate meters – The three-rate meter is a meter that provides three different prices. These prices are Evening, Weekend and Night unit prices.

Multi-site meters – These allow businesses with multiple premises or those who have high usage to help manage their usage through one contract.
