'What is an MPAN?'


What is an MPAN?

MPAN is the acronym for Meter Point Administration Number. It is also referred to as the Supply number or the S number.

This is a 12 digit unique reference number used throughout the UK. The number identifies an electricity supply point.

This supply point is not necessarily one singular point; for example, street lighting is typically on an unmetered supply and the street lighting inventory held for a specific authority would generally be against one MPAN - effectively allowing all lighting assets to be billed against the singular MPAN.

Each metered supply point would have its unique MPAN to allow for billing against that specific MPAN.
