i have a rental on our property which had an addition built onto it years ago and since then has became a seperate unit now my quistion is they are on the same electrical panel or share the same service isnt there a way to meter the power so we can give the units a more accurate power bill. now i can put all the circuts that feed one unit into a sub panel and but this is what im looking at i will be here to answer any questions

Sparky :

Sparky :

As of right now there is no sub panel for the unit?

Customer:

ok im also a sparky and i think the have a device that can be used to meter power as to which i could tell how much one unit uses and then could figure out the pg&e bill and dived it so each unit is paying only for the power they use.it has always been a like 60 40 split on the bill

Sparky :

Which device are you looking at?

Customer:
