Tenant submetering is a broad term applied to the use of hardware and software to bill tenants in commercial facilities for their actual usage of energy. The goals of tenant submetering are to ensure that the owner recovers the cost of energy from tenants and to make sure that tenants with high energy usage are not subsidized by those with lower usage. The owner installs meters to monitor the consumption of electricity, gas, water, and steam by individual tenants. The tenant is billed at the end of the month at the same rate the building owner pays for the building overall.
Measure More... For Less
Whether called Multi-Load, Multi Circuit, Multi Channel or even Branch Circuit energy metering, Setra’s line of power meters lower the cost per metering point and measures with more granularity than other metering solutions on the market.
Identify what's going to be metered
Look across the installation and identify the equipment that are to be measured to support energy strategy
Examples: Chillers, Lighting, AHU’s, Tenant Usage
Count up how many CT’s are needed
Match the CT amperage to the breaker feeding the load or use Patrol Flex Coils (up to 1500A)
Single-Phase Service = 1CT
Split-Phase Service = 2 CT’s
Three Phase Service= 3 CT’s
Select Meter Part Number
Take the CT count and select the meter with the right number by matching the CT’s with available inputs
SPM03EDN = 3 CT inputs
SPM12EDN = 12 CT inputs
SPM48EDN = 48 CT inputs
