Master-Sub Metering Arrangement
Master-metered account holders can only switch to a retailer under the following schemes:
- 1En-Bloc Contestability SchemeUnder the En-Bloc Contestability Scheme, the master-metered account holder (e.g. Management Corporation Strata Title or MCST) will buy electricity for the entire premises on behalf of all its tenants. The master-metered account holder will require consent of all tenants in order to be eligible for this scheme.
Should any of the tenants subsequently withdraw consent, the master-metered account holder and all consumers at the premises will revert to buying electricity from SP Group at the regulated tariff.
Learn more about the En-Bloc Contestability Scheme Guidelines.
- 2Demand Aggregation SchemeIf a master-metered account holder (e.g. MCST) is unable to obtain the consent of all its tenants, the other option to switch to a retailer would be the Demand Aggregation Scheme. Under this scheme, the master-metered account holder can switch to a retailer by carving out part of its common services load and the load of one or more consenting tenants under a sub-metered account. The remaining tenants who do not wish to be part of the scheme will continue to buy electricity under their preferred electricity supply arrangement.
Should any of the tenants subsequently withdraw consent, the master-metered account holder and all consumers under the scheme will revert to buying electricity from SP Group at the regulated tariff.
