Half Hour Electricity Supply

Half Hour Electricity Supply

Half Hourly (00 Profile) tendering service for sites with a consistent 100kva demand.


Half Hourly  meters can be found on large commercial sites.

Trying to obtain and then compare half hourly meter electricity prices is not straightforward. The first step is to obtain your half hourly consumption data from the previous year so that suppliers can evaluate your consumption patterns.

Whilst the commodity element of rising electricty costs plays a part in the increase of half hourly electricity costs they are also much affected by 3rd party, non-energy costs such as transmission costs, capacity costs and metering charges.


These can account for around 40% of the total cost. On top of this you will need to factor in government green taxes such as Feed in Tariff and Renewables Obligation.


Each supplier will take a different view and be able to offer prices dependent on where you are located and whether you are low voltage or high voltage as well as how much capacity is allocated to your site.

These are all aspects of your supply that can be analysed in advance and can help obtain the best rates available for you.

Do you know about Pass-through electricity contracts? A Pass-through electricity contract can be a attractive alternative for some companies.


Pass-through contracts are based on fixed price energy costs whilst third party costs* are passed-through by the supplier on behalf of other service providers.


Pass-through contracts can be an attractive option for users who:

  • Are not heavy users during peak demand periods (between 4pm and 7pm November to February.
  • Can shift their demand during high demand periods
  • Can amend shift patterns

*Third party costs include: Feed-in Tariff (FiT), Renewables Obligation (RO), Transmission Network Use of System (TNUoS), Distribution Use of System (DUoS), Balancing Services Use of System (BSUoS) and exclude any new taxes or levies and CCL and VAT increases. ** The costs of Contracts for Difference (CfD) and Capacity Market (CM)
