How to read your electric meter

​First confirm which type of meter you have using the images below.

Analog meters:

You can find your electric meter number at the bottom of the meter.


Advanced or Digital Meters:

The image below shows an example of an advanced digital meter. These meters cycle through three different numbers on the screen:

8888 – This screen is normal and indicates that your meter is on and working.

40kwh – Look for the phase that says “DEL” this screen indicates the amount of electricity that was delivered to your property.

0 kwh – Look for the phase that says “REC,” this screen is only needed if you export energy back to the grid, through solar panels for example.
