Please choose the image that looks most like your meter and follow the directions listed.


Reading Electric Meter (with Dials)

electric meter with dialsIf your meter has 4 or 5 dials as shown here, record the number the dial is pointing towards. When the pointer on a dial is between two numbers, read the smaller number. If a dial is too close to tell if it has reached the higher number, look at the next dial to the right. If the pointer on that dial has passed zero, then you should record the higher number; otherwise, record the lower number.
