How do I read my meter?
Single rate digital meter, two rate/economy 7, dial meter? There's lots of different meters out there. Some have dials, some have numbers, some have digital displays. But it doesn't need to be confusing. Basically you need to write down the numbers, from left to right. A typical reading looks like this: 07220.
Some meters have two numbers or sets of dials. This is because your business pays different rates for electric during the day and another during the night. (This is a great idea for businesses like bakeries that use a lot of electric in the middle of the night when it’s cheap.) It should be easy to spot on your bill.
