Getting Granular with Power Metering

Before delving into the importance of granular data for power metering, it is essential to understand why a submeter is used. Submetering provides the ability to monitor the actual energy usage of individual tenants, departments, or pieces of equipment in real time. It allows for measuring electricity on a more granular level than the building's main utility meter. With submetering, the user can determine system efficiency and identify equipment problems, thereby better understanding trends and energy usage. This is useful for:
