What is a Load Profile?

A Load Profile represents the pattern of electricity usage by day and by year for the average customer in one of eight Profile Classes.

Profile Classes 1 and 2 are for domestic premises and Classes 3 to 8 are for non-domestic premises.

We create Profiles for each of these Profile Classes by randomly selecting sites and installing half-hourly meters at these sites. This data is seen as representative of all meters in this Profile Class.
