All sites with a half-hourly meter have a kVA allowance. This is the level of power reserved from the network to guarantee provision to your site. This allowance is itemised on your bill as a capacity charge. We can ensure your level is set correctly so that you are not paying for more capacity than you actually need. Likewise we will make sure you are not being charged higher rates for using more than your allocation.
