There are three common types of electric meters used in businesses. These are:
Digital meters – simply read from left to right. If you have an ECO20:20 or Economy 7 meter, you’ll have sets of two numbers – make sure you take note of both readings.
Electronic meters – there are two different types of electronic meters. Meters that show a digital cycle display in which you have to press a button to see the numbers displayed and meters in which the numbers will be visible at all times. Remember to disregard the red numbers and refer to your previous bill or Utility Bidder to find your day and night rates.
Dial meters – simply read this type of meter from left to right. If the number is between two different digits, always take the lower number. If this is between 9 and 0 then take the number 9.

There’s many additional and inclusive charges that make up your statement. Only around 44 per cent of your unit rate is made up of raw electricity, the rest is made up of additional charges that get picked up on the journey to you. Roughly 28 per cent goes to ‘use of systems’ charges, while the remaining 28 per cent of you bill goes to government schemes.
