Tenant Metering for Retail Businesses

Tenant Metering for Retail Businesses

In a commercial retail setting, billing tenants for actual, measured usage on a regular basis and taking the uncertainty out of the equation makes sense for all parties. It improves cash flow, avoids end-of-year reconciliations and, in general, places responsibility for consumption where it belongs.

Submeters are a cost-effective approach to tenant billing and energy management in a mall environment where space is routinely reconfigured to accommodate tenant turnover and planned improvements. This cost-effective solution minimizes rewiring and disruption of retail operations during typical ongoing tenants’ improvements.
