Why shopping malls and retail spaces need submetering

Retail properties are complex. The types of tenants vary widely, as do tenant utility needs and consumption patterns. This makes tracking tenant utility usage complicated. 

You could allocate utility cost by square footage, but that often doesn't reflect actual usage from leased spaces. And no tenant wants to pay more than their fair share. 

Submetering gives retail properties a way to capture true utility usage and transparently allocate those expenses to each tenant. Submetering helps you:

  • Measure multiple utilities throughout your property (such as electric, chilled water, hot water, steam, water, gas, and condenser water)
  • More easily manage tenant turnover
  • Better calculate common area charges among tenants
  • Expose anomalies between different types of businesses and the “industry norm” so that energy costs can be accurately billed without missing cost recoupment opportunities
  • Collect the data needed to apply for utility incentives
