Reading your meter

Reading your meter

So simple.
2 minutes


Does it have to be every day?

Yes, but if you miss a day don't worry too much. The more consistent you are the better.

Should I get a home energy monitor?

Well it's up to you. It's not necessary for this quest but if you want dive into the detail of your electricity use they can be useful.

Is a home energy monitor the same as a smart meter?

No. Smart meters replace your meter and send the data back to the supplier. A home energy monitor attaches to your meter and doesn't send the info to the company and you decide when you use it - important if you are sensitive to electromagnetic radiation.

Beware of

Things that affect your electricity use

Keep a note of whether it's a particularly sunny or cold day, did you do a big batch of washing/drying etc?
