How do you read digital electric meter?

The output of a digital watt meter is numerical. The numbers that you see on the face of the meter are the actual kilowatt hours that you have used. Read monthly the utility company will subtract last months reading (a lower number) from this months reading (a higher number) and the difference is the amount that you will have used over the last month. This amount is multiplied by the cost per kWh in your area and that is the amount that you are billed for electrical use. You should be able to find the kWh you are charged on your bill. If you can not find it call the utility company to find out what they charge you per kilowatt hour.
