Commercial Gas Meter Installation

Having the right type of gas meter can help you monitor your gas usage and only pay for the energy you use.

Whether you’ve moved into a new property, you need a new meter type, or your current gas meter is faulty, Love Energy Savings can help you find the right meter for you.

The first step when installing a new commercial gas meter is to find your Meter Point Reference Number (MPRN). This is a unique number used to identify the supply to your property. This can usually be found on your meter or a recent bill.

Once you’ve found your meter number, it’s important to consider the type of gas meter you need for your property. This will depend on how and when you use your energy. At Love Energy Savings, we can provide advice on the right meter type for you during the commercial gas meter installation process.

When you’re ready to get started, you can use our simple meter installation form to book your new connection. When you switch with us, you can even receive a free commercial gas meter installation.

How Your MPRN Status Affects Your Gas Meter Installation

Your MPRN Status refers to the current state of your meter. There are four main gas meter states:

  • Live
  • Disconnected
  • New
  • Removed

If you don’t know your current gas meter status, you can contact the MPAS (Meter Point Administration Service). You can also enter your postcode into the Energy Networks Find My Operator Checker.

You can find out more about meter status types and how they affect your gas meter installation, here:


  • Live Gas Meter

    With a live meter, your gas meter is set up and ready to use. If you’re happy with your meter type, you can now find the best gas deals for your business.

    Start Your Quote


  • Disconnected Gas Meter

    If your meter is disconnected, your current MPRN will not be reused as the connection has been removed. This status is referred to as ‘siteworks’, meaning you will need to speak to your network operator to arrange a new meter.

    You can find your network operator by clicking the button below. Once you’ve secured your new MPRN, you can arrange a new gas meter installation with Love Energy Savings.

    Find Your Network Operator


  • New Gas Meter

    For a new meter, your MPRN has been created but pipes may not be installed yet. Your MPRN can be activated 3-4 weeks before pipe installation.

    If you have a new meter status, you can receive quotes from us by completing our easy-to-use meter installation form.

    Start Your Meter Installation


  • Removed Gas Meter

    If your gas meter has been removed, you will need to arrange a GT1 survey with your Distribution Network Operator (DNO).

    A GT1 survey will provide information about your meter to find out whether the infrastructure is in place to provide a gas supply to your business.

Commercial Electricity Meter Installation

Commercial electricity meters are crucial to manage your electricity usage. Having the correct electricity meter installed can help you reduce your bills by managing wasted energy.

To start your electricity meter installation, you will need your Meter Point Administrator Number (MPAN). Your MPAN is used to identify the electricity supply to your property. This can usually be found on your meter or a recent bill.

As with gas meters, it’s important to consider the type of electric meter you need. Electricity meters often have more options than gas meters. This can include half hourly meters for large businesses and multi-rate meters.

When you complete your commercial electricity meter installation with us, you can speak to our team to discuss the best meter option for you. To get started, simply complete our easy-to-use meter installation form. We aim to complete your meter installation in as little as 2 weeks.

How Your MPAN Status Affects Your Electricity Meter Installation

Your MPAN status refers to the current state of your electricity meter. This will let you know whether your meter is ready for supply or if work needs to be carried out to access the supply.

Your MPAN status can be in one of four main states:

  • Live
  • Disconnected
  • New
  • De-Energised

Here, we explain the most common meter status types and what they mean for your electric meter:


  • Live Electricity Meter

    If your electricity meter is live, it is set up and ready to use. This means you can compare electricity deals to find the best tariff for your meter.

    Start Your Quote


  • Disconnected Electricity Meter

    If your electricity meter is disconnected, your MPAN will not be reused as the service cable has been removed. This means you will need to speak to a network operator to arrange a new cable. After this, you will be booked in with our DNO and given a new MPAN.

    Once you have your new MPAN, you can start your electricity meter installation with Love Energy Savings.

    Find Your Network Operator


  • New Electricity Meter

    If a new MPAN has been created for your meter but it still needs data such as Profile Class and a Meter Time-Switch Code, your meter will be referred to as ‘new’. The service cable may not be installed, but it is planned for installation.

    If your meter has a new status, you can contact Love Energy Savings, for our best electricity meter installation quotes. Our team will guide you through the process of installing a new meter.

    Start Your Meter Installation


  • De-Energised Meter

    If your meter is de-energised, the meter fuse has been removed despite the service cable still being in place.

    A de-energised meter has been removed by the supplier from the premise. Any business with a de-energised meter will need to contact the supplier who removed the meter. Your supplier will then start the process to reinstate the electricity meter.

Commercial Smart Meters

Smart energy meters are designed to take much more accurate gas and electricity readings.

A smart meter monitor sends readings to your supplier automatically, removing the need for estimated billing. This means you’ll only pay for the energy you’re using.

A gas and electric smart meter can be a great option for small businesses that don’t meet the criteria for a half-hourly meter. Commercial smart meters will still offer you the benefits of automatic meter readings to help you manage your energy usage and costs.

The accurate and regular readings of a smart meter can also be beneficial when you carry out a business energy audit. The up-to-date and accurate readings will allow you to easily identify how much energy you’re using and when you are consuming most of your gas and electricity.

Commercial smart meters are often free to install, as the setup costs are covered by your energy supplier.

What Other Types of Commercial Energy Meter Are Available?

Standard Meters

Businesses with a standard, single-rate gas or electric meter will have their usage charged at a flat rate. This is likely the option for businesses using most of their energy in peak hours.

This isn’t the most ideal method of commercial electricity monitoring as you will have to submit manual readings.

Economy 7 Meter (Multi-Rate Meter)

As the name suggests, a multi-rate energy meter charges different rates at different times of the day. You will pay one rate during peak hours and a cheaper rate during off-peak hours. These are also sometimes known as two-rate meters.

The most common type is an economy 7 meter. This meter type offers a cheaper rate during a 7-hour window. Businesses can also choose a three-rate meter. This offers you a day rate, an evening and weekend rate, and a night rate.

Multi-rate meters are often installed for businesses using most of their energy outside of peak times.

Meters for Large Usage Businesses

Half-hourly meters are required for businesses using at least 100,000 kWh of electricity each year. If your business uses more than 70,000 kWh of electricity a year, you can choose to install a half-hourly meter.

Half-hourly meters provide the most accurate billing available by submitting automatic meter readings to your supplier every half hour. They can also provide in-depth consumption data for businesses seeking to analyse and reduce their energy usage.

Business Energy Meter FAQs

  • What Information Do I Need to Arrange a Business Meter Install?

    To install a new commercial energy meter, you will need your MPAN and MPRN. If you don’t have a connection at your premises, you will need to contact your DNO and gas DNO. The DNO will create the energy connection and provide you with your MPAN and MPRN.

    The team at Love Energy Savings can provide advice on arranging a new connection at your premises.

  • What Does MPAN & MPRN Mean?

    MPAN stands for Meter Point Administration Number. It is the unique number given to your electricity meter. This number will be used by energy suppliers to determine your electricity rates.

    MPRN stands for Meter Point Reference Number. This is the unique number for the gas meter at your premises. 

    You can find more information on MPAN and MPRN here.

  • Do I Need a Meter Operator (Mop) & Data Collector (DC)?

    If you have a half-hourly electricity meter, it is a legal requirement to appoint a meter operator and data collector. Your MOP contract will cover meter maintenance, fault fixing, and the essential telecommunication infrastructure required to provide your chosen supplier with your consumption data.

    At Love Energy Savings, we can appoint your MOP for you. We work with one of the UK's largest energy data management providers to find you an MOP contract at a cost much lower than your current supplier.

  • What if My Business Has Multiple Sites?

    Businesses with more than one site will often have multiple meters with different contracts and varying contract end dates. This can make it difficult to keep on top of your business energy bills.

    Switching to a multi-site energy deal could save your business time and money. Your energy rates and renewal dates will be consolidated into one plan. You can also benefit from greater negotiating power, potentially giving you access to cheaper energy deals.

    If you have more than one site, let one of our connection experts know when requesting your new meter. They can provide advice on whether you could switch to a multi-site energy deal.
