Here's how to read your meter:
Read your meter, from left to right, and submit the numbers you see. Include all zeros.
Dial meters read like clock hands.
- Start on the right, and move to the left.
- If the dial rests between two numbers, record the lower number. If, however, the pointer rests between 0 and 9, record the 9.
- Record every number, including zeros.
- When you report or call in your meter reading, report the numbers from left to right.
