Data

Why is data important?

Metering data gives you the power to make timely and informed decisions for you and your customers. Accurate and 24/7 access to energy data paints a valuable picture of energy consumption and allows for improved energy and cost management and reporting.

Our standard service delivers meter data to you and the electricity market the following day. We can also provide more frequent data based on your business’ needs.

Accessing your Data

At Powermetric, we make accessing data as simple as possible.

  • Customer portal: easy access to your visualised energy data and tailored reporting.
  • Daily data forwarding: choose to receive daily data forwarding for timely and simple access.
  • Modbus Connection: allows your Building Management System (BMS) or SCADA system to access real time meter data, via a hard wired Modbus connection directly from the meter. Power quality data may also be access via this method.
