Please be advised a quotation can take up to 3 weeks as we have to consider any embargoes, traffic easements and we have to gain DNO approval to adopt onto their network.
Siteworks Information – what it is and why we need it
MPAN (existing services only) - this is the unique Meter Point Account Number (MPAN) for any existing service. This information will help us to trace the existing installation and where known, determine the size and capacity of the existing meter. The MPAN can be found on your Electric bill. AAQ – this is the maximum annual electric load you will be expecting to use through your meter in a single year, based on the maximum capacity of the Electric appliances you are planning to have on site. A Qualified Electrician will be able to help you determine this. This information will enable Hotel Energy to accurately order the correct amount of electricity is available at your meter point.
PID – this is the maximum hourly electricity load you will be expecting to use through your meter in a single hour, based on the maximum capacity of the electricity appliances you are planning to have on site. A qualified Electrician will be able to help you determine this. This information will be used to determine the size of the meter required, and the size of the cable required to meet the demand.
Please note that for alterations we still need to know the PID and AAQ. If your alteration affects the length of the cable, this can affect the diameter of the cable also. For increases in capacity, we need to know the existing PID and AAQ as well as the increased PID and AAQ. This must be based on the equipment that is on site and not based on the amount of electricity stated on the bill. The electricity company requires these figures to reduce the risk to the existing gas network.
HH/Non HH – Supplies under 100kVa tend to be Non –Half Hourly (NHH) metered, using standard meters that are read manually. Sites with a peak load above 100KW need to be equipped with “half-hourly” meters which record total consumption every half-hour and pass the information to the energy supplier. If you have an HH meter it’s mandatory to appoint a Meter Operator (MOP) and Data Collector (DC) for your site. These companies are separate from your electric supply through your supplier.
Meter Operator- A Meter Operator (MOP) is responsible for installing and maintaining metering and communication equipment, and provides the technical meter details to the Data Collector to enable consumption data collection.
Data Collector – A Data Collector (DC) is an organisation appointed by the supplier and accredited to carry out Data Collection for Half- Hourly Metering Systems. Metering data is collected and validated by the DC and forwarded to the Data Aggregator, who applies additional factors before sending it to the supplier. The supplier is responsible for maintaining the level of service up to or above 99% of actual data. This is an industry requirement.
Whole Current Meter – single phase meter used to measure AC mains current in which the whole current to be measured flows directly through the meter. CT Meters- electricity meter where the electricity flows through a Current Transformer which reduces the electricity to flow through the meter by a defined ratio. The ratio can be found on the cabling quote for the new building or on the transformer itself.
