Abstract: This article will introduce submetering solutions from the sub-metering definition,
sub-metering working, submetering application, utility submetering solutions, and the tenant metering solution.
Submetering has become one of the key technologies to improve efficiency, reduce costs, and achieve sustainable energy utilization. Our MCM400 sub-meter is tailor-made for power circuit sub-metering projects, which has unparalleled features and benefits that revolutionize the face of energy management. This article will introduce the submetering solutions based on our MCM400 sub-meter.
What is submetering?
Submetering, that is, sub-metering, is a technology that accurately measures electric energy by installing sub-meter equipment in the power system. Its purpose is to achieve detailed monitoring of electric energy usage and provide detailed data support for energy management. Thus, the sub-meter comes out. It is to solve the energy consumption differences between different circuits, departments, or users in the overall energy system, thereby achieving more accurate resource allocation and cost control.
How Submetering Works?
The sub-metering process involves installing advanced energy metering equipment in the power system, such as the MCM400 multi-channel energy meter. These devices can accurately measure energy consumption and differentiate between different circuits or users. By connecting the sub-meter equipment to the overall power system, the power data of each channel can be obtained in real-time, providing basic data for subsequent analysis and management.
As an advanced sub-meter device, the MCM400 multi-channel electric energy meter has excellent real-time measurement capabilities. It performs metering operations through different microcontrol units (MCUs), ensuring high-precision billing performance. Whether monitoring multiple three-phase circuits or single-phase circuits, MCM400 can accurately measure power consumption in real-time and provide users with refined energy data support.
What Are the Benefits of Submetering?
Benefits of submetering
Fair Billing: With submetering, tenants are billed based on their actual usage rather than a fixed or averaged rate, promoting fairness.
Energy Conservation: Increased awareness of individual utility usage often leads to more responsible consumption habits among tenants, contributing to overall energy conservation.
Cost Allocation: Property owners can more accurately allocate and manage utility costs, promoting efficiency and cost savings.
Compliance: In some regions, submetering may be required by regulations or codes to ensure fair and transparent utility billing practices.
By implementing utility submetering solutions, property owners and managers can improve transparency, reduce disputes over utility costs, and encourage more sustainable practices among tenants.

What are utility submetering solutions?
In a business environment, effective energy management is critical. Utility submetering solutions refer to systems that allow for the measurement and monitoring of individual energy consumption within a multi-tenant or multi-unit building. These solutions are commonly used in residential and commercial properties where there are multiple occupants, such as apartment buildings, condominiums, or office complexes. The submeters are installed at the individual units to measure and record the consumption of utilities. Why our MCM400 submeter is ideal for utility submetering solutions
Accurate cost measurement: The MCM400 energy meter can provide business users with accurate energy consumption data with its high-precision real-time measurement function. This accuracy directly affects the accuracy of cost measurement, allowing companies to better understand energy expenses and develop cost-effective management strategies.
Optimize energy usage mode: Through the multi-rate time-of-use (TOU) function of MCM400, commercial users can use electricity according to energy rates in different time periods to optimize energy costs. This intelligent approach to energy management allows commercial users to use electricity efficiently while minimizing energy costs.
Seamless data collection: MCM400 electric energy meter realizes seamless collection of multi-channel electric energy data through advanced data acquisition technology. This ensures that business users can fully understand the energy consumption of different departments or equipment and optimize power consumption strategies in a targeted manner.
Connect to the remote host through the RS485 port: Through the device’s built-in RS485 port, MCM400 can easily connect to a remote host. This connection method allows business users to monitor and manage energy data anytime and anywhere, providing an efficient way for remote energy management.
What is a tenant metering solution?
A tenant metering solution is a system that allows for the measurement and monitoring of individual utility consumption within a multi-tenant or multi-unit building. Tenant metering is essentially a form of utility submetering tailored to the needs of property owners, managers, and individual tenants. Transparent billing and the ability for tenants to monitor their own consumption can contribute to increased tenant satisfaction.
In a multi-tenant environment, the MCM400 sub meter provides a personalized solution to ensure accurate metering and fair distribution of energy costs to each tenant.
Personalized energy consumption data: MCM400, with its multi-channel design, can accurately record each tenant’s power consumption data. This provides personalized energy consumption data to different business units, helping them better understand their own energy usage patterns.
Differentiated applications of TOU functions: Through the multi-rate time-of-use (TOU) function, MCM400 provides individual units with a more flexible billing method. Tenants can choose the most economical power consumption period based on their energy needs to optimize costs.
Transparent billing system: The MCM400 multi-circuit meter provides a transparent billing system for multi-tenant environments through real-time metering and TOU functions. This transparency ensures that each tenant has a clear understanding of their energy usage, resulting in a fair allocation of energy costs.
In terms of utility sub-metering and tenant submetering, the MCM400 energy meter meets the diverse needs of commercial and multi-tenant environments through its advanced features and flexibility, providing a reliable solution for energy management.
