My Meter Readings

Here's how to read your meter:

Digital Meter

Read your meter, from left to right, and submit the numbers you see. Include all zeros.

Dial Meter

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.
