How to read your meter

Reading your meter can help you better understand your energy usage.

Reading an analogue meter

Analogue meters are the most common found in homes and small businesses in the Endeavour Energy network.

The meter used in the example below uses five dials to give a reading. Here's how to read it:

  • Stand directly in front of the meter.
  • Read each dial in turn starting from left to right writing down each figure as you go.
  • When a dial hand points between numbers, record the lower number.
  • It is important to only read dials that are black.
  • In this example the reading would be 2-7-0-3-8.
