According to the Carbon Trust, introducing smart energy meters can actually save you money. They have undertaken metering trials and the results showed that smart energy meters, when combined with consumption data and energy-saving advice, gave average savings of 12% a year. Indeed if it highlights one process that can be turned off or eliminated then it could literally pay for itself over night.

We can arrange to install meters, software, and systems that constantly monitor your usage.

Using the information captured we are able to provide you with a suite of reports and the advice and back up that will give you a detailed picture highlighting patterns, trends and return on investment information. Knowing what you are using and when, is one of the first steps that you can take that will have a positive impact on your costs and how the organisation views its consumption. In addition it will also provide valuable information to monitor and make informed judgements on new energy saving initiatives.
Electricity supplies with a demand of less than 100kW are not obliged to have half hourly metering equipment installed and are known as non-half hourly (NHH) supplies. The charges for these services are often recovered via the chosen electricity supplier’s bill. However, there is an active and extremely competitive market for smart electricity meter operation services within the UK for both (NHH) and (HH). Many customers, particularity those with multiple sites can achieve significant cost savings and service enhancements by sourcing a national agreement which is where MAID can help.
Once you are up and running we will even provide access to your own online account with over 120-reports, so you can easily identify all areas of energy waste, which will help you manage your energy consumption more effectively.
In addition to this you won't have any more estimated bills as we will also arrange for your meter readings to be sent directly to your energy supplier even if you are not one of our customers. We can also arrange for the cost of your smart meter to be added to your current electricity bill, so you don’t have any additional paper work to manage on a monthly basis.
