The first thing you’ll need to do, is find out what your unique gas supply number is – known as the MPRN (meter point reference number). The MPRN can be found on a recent bill, but if you’ve just moved into a new premises and don’t have one, the Meter point administration service should be able to help – you can call them on #CAMPAIGNBUSINESSSERVICENUMBER#. You’ll then need to decide on the type of meter and tariff that would suit your business best. If you’re not sure about what you need, then a quick chat with one of our friendly advisors on #CAMPAIGNBUSINESSSERVICENUMBER# will put you on the right track as well as ensure you keep your new gas meter installation costs to a minimum. Some of the main types of meter include:
- Standard meters only use one payment rate so you’ll pay the same price for your gas no matter what the time of day – ideal if your business is open during traditional office hours.
- Evening and weekend meters use two different rates – a cheaper rate for evenings and weekends and a pricier ‘day rate’. These are good if your business is busiest over the weekend or at night – for instance, bars, clubs and pubs.
- Smart meters are great if you want to stick to a budget or actively look for ways to cut down on your energy consumption as they monitor what you use.
Smart meters are free to install thanks to a government rollout scheme but if you’re looking for any other type of meter then you’ll probably be expected to pay for installation but in most cases, you’ll be able to negotiate a price along with your tariff. When it comes to arranging a new gas meter installation, just bear in mind that you or a staff member may need to be onsite when the engineer calls, or they might not be able to carry out the work.
