Submetering Solutions

Water submetering

When tenants are accountable for every drop of water versus paying a flat utility fee, everybody wins. Submetering water can help curb overuse, lower building operating costs and even help prevent water damage caused by leaks.  

Proven to significantly reduce consumption

A study (PDF) found that residential submetered properties led to water savings of 15.3%, compared with similar rental properties that charge a flat rate for water.

Helps lower building operating costs

Billing through submetering enables building owners to better control operating costs, as occupants are now incentivized to reduce usage. It also results in water costs being excluded from the lease rates.

INSTALLING WATER METERS IN NEW DEVELOPMENTS DURING CONSTRUCTION

Metergy project managers work with a developer's mechanical engineer to specify the submeter requirements into the design drawings. Submeters are installed concurrently with the plumbing installation, seamlessly integrating.

retrofitting older properties for water submetering

Metergy is offering an innovative water retrofit program to existing building owners. This provides building owners the opportunity to reduce operating expenses and increase NOI.

ADVANTAGES OF SUBMETERING MULTIPLE UTILITIES (E.G. ELECTRICITY AND WATER)

When electricity and water are submetered together, the charges can be combined on a single bill — simplifying things for building occupants and property managers.

About our water metering equipment
