Providing the Goldilocks solution for utilities in rented accommodation. 

Traditionally, there are three options available to this sector:

  1. Individual domestic meters for each resident – each resident can choose their own energy supplier and is only billed for what they use.

  2. Single main commercial meter to take advantage of economies of scale – typically residents have the cost of utilities included in their rent

  3. A single main commercial meter with sub-meters take advantage of economies of scale but ensure residents still pay for what they use – this provides the best of both worlds but requires an early decision to ensure the appropriate infrastructure is included in the building design. We call this approach COMM:UNITY

These bring with them the trilemma of low cost, freedom of choice and easy management. Deciding which energy option is just right can be a nightmare.
