Are Split Electricity Meters Worth the Cost?

We often hear from clients that splitting up electricity meters isn’t worth the cost. This is not true. Splitting up electricity meters and adding a granny flat meter can save you money. Often, landlords include utilities in the rental cost. If renters are not responsible for their electricity usage, they are more apt to leave on the lights and electronic appliances when it is not necessary. Separating your meter from your tenant’s meter may also lower your bill by taking you out of the higher consumption bracket.

Having separate meters will also remove the headache that comes with splitting up the bill and prevent disagreements and lawsuits.

But when you split the space or add on an addition, you also need to install make sure all of the electrical wiring has been separated so you can install separate electricity meters or a granny flat meter.
