French term or phrase: compteurs [électriques] divisionnaires
Is there a term for this in English? 'Divisional meter(s)' gets one or two googles, but I'm not convinced. Any other suggestions?

"[On va] poser des compteurs électriques divisionnaires pour connaître avec précision la part de l’énergie qui est exclusivement consacrée au chauffage de l’eau."

This is in an apartment complex.
