Checking your business usage


KVA capacity services for your business premises 

KVA capacity only applies to half hourly (HH) meters and is the maximum power that your meter
can draw from the grid without receiving an excess charge. In effect your KVA capacity is how much electricity the grid reserves for your meter. You pay to reserve the electricity, and will not pay extra if you don’t use it but will waste the money you pay to reserve it.

If your KVA is set too low you will exceed the agreed capacity and will be charged an excess charge for your electricity which can range from 47% to 132% above your usual cost.

For these reasons it is important to have the right level of KVA.

Determining the right level of KVA capacity is not straight forward and required details analysis of your energy requirements.

Our team will look at every aspect of your business and potential future of the building to give a professional opinion on your KVA capacity.
