You can submeter in most new multifamily or multi-tenant commercial properties. In fact, submeters are required in new construction in many jurisdictions. In some jurisdictions you can retrofit buildings for submeters. Submeter utilization is regulated by local public utilities commissions, at the state level, and at the federal level. Before you decide how to allocate your utilities, it makes sense to talk to an experienced utility billing provider who can inform you of your regulations, options, and lease riders needed.
