Are you part of an embedded network but are unsure about what this means or how to read your electricity bills? My name is Ben Chester and I am the COO of electricity retailer, LPE, and it is my goal to make sure that occupants
of embedded networks understand their bills and their electricity supply.
In many multi-tenancy buildings like apartment blocks, embedded networks are installed as
a way of saving occupants money on electricity. For most consumers, this is an unfamiliar
concept. In a direct market contract, each consumer
pays their own network charges based on being a small customer.
In an embedded network, a ‘parent meter’ is installed and the community is viewed as
a business customer. Occupants are charged a lower rate and only pay a portion of the
one network charge for the one supply point. Your bill should be no different to a direct
market contract bill and will include An account summary
The total amount needing to be paid A chart indicating your electricity usage
And important information like your meter number and the ‘supply address’
Remember, if you are part of a multi-tenancy building that also has centralised hot water,
your bill may also include hot water charges which will be shown here.
Some sites have metering charges due to the infrastructure costs associated with the Embedded
Network, these are shown here. Even with these costs, occupants will still
be paying less than if they were in a direct market contract
An embedded network is an electricity model that allows occupants to save money and your
bill may include hot water charges if your building has centralised hot water.
