Submetering

Submetering can be used to collect real-time energy data from any source in a building. A property can have two submeters or 200 submeters, depending on the data points of interest. Submetering can be used to break down consumption by space, equipment type, or source, and can measure electricity, water, or gas.

Why it Matters

Most buildings only have one meter per utility. With just one meter, it is hard to see where exactly the resources in your building are being consumed. With the advent of wireless and web-enabled metering technologies, submeters are inexpensive and easy to install. Submeters can also be used to implement triple-net leases for tenants.
