Reading Your Electric Meter


Reading your electric meter is a good way to know how much you are spending on electricity. Electricity is measured by kilowatt-hours. For example, a 100 watt light bulb burning for 10 hours uses one kilowatt-hour of electricity. Electric meters keep track of how many kilowatt-hours you have used.



The Digital Meter


Reading a digital meter is easy. All you have to do is read the meter like the mileage odometer in your car. Every time the number increases, that's another kilowatt-hour used.

The Reading is 46,372




Once you know how to read your meter, it's easy to figure out how much electricity you've used since your last electric bill. Look at last month's bill and find the reading recorded by CUB. Then, subtract the number you just read off your meter from last month's reading. This gives you the total number of kilowatt-hours you've used since your last reading.
