How do I read an electricity dial meter?
Follow these points, to help you read a dial meter:
- read the dials from left to right starting with the dial marked 10000. Don't read the dial marked 1/10
- if the pointer on a dial is between two numbers, write down the lower number. This may not be the number nearest to the pointer
- if the pointer is between 0 and 9, use 9
- if the pointer is exactly on a number, write it down and underline it
- if any of the underlined numbers you have written down are followed by a 9, you'll need to take one away from the number you’ve underlined
The meter reading in this example is 94694 kWh.
