Ordering a DaRa group panel meter
To order a DaRa group panel meter, send your specifications to our sales and engineering team for pricing. Our estimators will select the most suitable group meter panel based on your application and whether it’s going to be installed indoors or outdoors, wall mounted or free standing. We’ll then send you a quote together with the specifications of the group meter panel.
Once you’ve confirmed your order, our design engineers will get to work to generate the approval and construction drawings, which you’ll receive within 48-72 hours. Only when you’re happy with these, will we assemble the switchboard and fit the required electrical equipment, including switches, controls and circuit breakers, in line with the specifications and electrical drawings.
The manufacturing process is carried out in our custom switchboard production plant in Mulgrave, and depending on the complexity of your group meter panel, can take anything from 5 to 20 working days; although stock standards group meter panels are usually completed within 2 – 5 working days in our express production plant in Cranbourne.
Following final testing and QA, we’ll deliver your panel board to your site.

Group Metering Panels
Supplying power throughout an apartment block occupied by different tenants presents a unique challenge. How best to meet electricity demands to each individual and differing apartment and track the usage of each tenant so as to bill them accordingly?
It is important to isolate each apartment so that no two tenancies are sharing the same supply, as that would cause an issue around which tenant should be pay for the shared usage. Fortunately, Group Metering Panels (GMPs) solve this problem by monitoring the precise energy usage of individual accommodations.
Dara manufactures and installs metering panels that come complete with service disconnection devices, meter panel isolators, service fuses and outgoing circuit breakers that are all fully wired in compliance with local service installation rules. Our wide range of GMP configurations allows us to fit the perfect panel for your building whether it be an apartment block or a hospital.
