How do I read meter dial electricity

Hi @Patjojoy1, this page on how to read your meter might help.

A few tips and tricks for reading your dial meter:

  • If the pointer is between two numbers, always take the lower number

  • If the pointer is directly over a number, check the dial on the right to determine whether to use this number or the one before it. If the next dial is near the 9 then use the lower number but, if the dial is closer to 1 then use the higher number.

I often find it worth writing down the numbers starting on the right and then working left. This means that if I come across a 9 I know that I’ll need to use the lower number on the next dial to the left. If you’re ever uncertain, send us in a picture and we’ll let you know if you’ve read it correctly!
