How to Read the Electric Meter

Most electric meters are clock face, which means they use clock faces instead of actual numbers.

There are usually five clocks. Reading the clock faces from left to right, note the number the hand is pointing to. If the hand is between two numbers, note the lower number. If the number on each meter, left to right was 1 2 3 4 5, your meter read is 12,345 KWh.

If the next month it reads 1 2 4 4 5, you would have used 100 KWh.
