Digital meter

Digital Meters have an electronic display which changes every 9 seconds. You may also have a 'Scroll' button which allows you to manually change the screens.

The way you read your Digital Meter depends on whether you pay a single (24 hour) rate or different rates for day and night. This can be found on your previous bill under 'Usage Details' and 'Description'.

To read your meter (Single or 24 hour rate): 

  1. Scroll or wait until your digital meter shows the following screen:

    standard or 24hr digital electric meter

    E.g. The reading for this meter would be 0005812

  2. Write down the numbers from left to right, including any zeros
  3. Ignore any numbers after the decimal point. If your meter does not have a decimal point, read all numbers, including any zeros.

To read your meter (Day/Night rates):

  1. For your Day Reading, scroll or wait until your meter shows the following screen:

    electric digital meter - day

    E.g. The day reading would be 0012763

  2. For your Night Reading, scroll or wait until your meter shows the following screen:

    electric digital meter - night

    E.g. The night reading would be 0007759 

  • Write down both numbers for Day and Night from left to right, including any zeros
  • Ignore any numbers after the decimal point. If your meter does not have a decimal point, read all numbers, including any zeros.
