Manufacturing premises, like other non-domestic premises, are already included in the smart or advanced metering arrangements. Energy suppliers were required to roll out advanced meters to their larger non-domestic energy users by April 2014, ie electricity premises in profile classes 5-8, and gas premises with annual consumption of greater than 732 MWh. The current roll-out of smart meters will cover smaller non-domestic energy users, ie non-domestic electricity premises in profile classes 1-4, and non-domestic premises with annual gas consumption below 732 MWh per year.
