Top best answers to the question «How do i read my electric meter kwh»

These dials measure the number of kilowatt-hours (kWh) you use in 1s, 10s, 100s, 1,000s and 10,000s. To correctly read your meter, read the dials in order, starting from the right and moving to the left. Write down the numbers from right to left. In most cases, the pointer will be between two numbers on the dial.

  1. Press 6 on the keypad until you see 'IMP R01' followed by 8 digits.
  2. You'll then see 8 digits (e.g. 0012565.3) followed by kWh at the bottom right of the screen. This will be your peak/day time reading.
  3. This is your read, so for this example your reading would be 12565.

Your meter will have one button which says ‘reconnect’ and another button which says ‘display’ or ‘display select’. To read the meter: press the ‘display’ or ‘display select’ button press the ‘display’ or ‘display select’ button again until you see numbers followed by KWH

If your smart meter has a keypad (manufactured by Secure) Gas meters - press 9 on your keypad, you'll see 'Volume' and a reading followed by 'm3'. Single rate electricity meters - press 9 on your keypad, you'll see 'IMP kWh’ and a reading followed by 'kWh'.
