Details on how to read your meter

Your meter measures your electricity use. It is read by a Nova Scotia Power meter reader every two months.

To Read Your Meter:
1

Read all the dials on the meter, beginning with the dial on the far right. Write the numbers down in the same order, from right to left.

2

If the hand on your meter dial is between two numbers, record the lower number. For instance, if the hand on the dial is between the 3 and the 4, record the 3. If the hand on the dial is between the 0 and the 9, record the 9.

3

If your meter dial hand is directly on a number, look at the dial to its right. If that dial is on or has just passed 0 then record the number at which the dial is pointing. If the previous dial has not yet reached 0 then record the lower number.

For instance, in the example below dial 4 appears to be pointing directly at the 7, but because the previous dial has not finished its rotation, it is still a 6.

To calculate the kilowatt hours used since your last power bill, subtract your reading from the reading shown on your most recent power bill.
