What is Suite Metering?

Developers reviewing plans for suite meteringUtility Suite Metering is a simple, cost effective program offered to condominium and rental buildings, where each unit gets its own meter.  This means that customers pay only for the electricity used in their unit and can benefit from their individual conservation efforts.

For developers. condo boards and property managers, the program helps better manage the electricity used in common areas, including hallways, lobbies, garages and heating, cooling and ventilation systems. The financial risks associated with bulk electricity costs are eliminated.
