Demand is the rate at which electricity is used. Energy use is the total amount of electricity consumed over a period of time. Demand is usually measured in kilowatts. Energy use is measured in kilowatt hours.
Demand meters are used for measuring electricity used in commercial and industrial buildings, as well as other installations billed under Grand Bahama Power’s demand energy rates. They measure and record the amount of energy used, and the highest rate of demand over a specific period of time.
