Electric sub-meter is a device that records and measures the use of electricity for each building unit and acts as an alternative to a single meter that measures the entire building's energy consumption. The electric sub-meter is connected downstream from the main utility meter and displays individual energy consumption of a multi-unit residential or commercial building. Such sub-meters enable building owners to charge unit owners or individual tenants for actual energy consumption, while allowing individual unit owners to take action to reduce overall energy consumption.
