Meter reading

I’ve been asked to submit a meter reading for electric. My meter shows 2 5 digit numbers (excluding the numbers before the decimal point) and next to this number is a either a small 1 or 2. How do I know which is day and which is the night rate?

Boil a kettle in the day and see which one moves?

Hi @Kateb999

The boil a kettle trick is probably the easiest option.

The other option is check a previous bill, or take some readings separated by a few hours during the Day (usually 7am to Midnight)
