|UNDERSTANDING YOUR RESIDENTIAL
Your electric meter is designed to accurately measure the amount of electricity
your home is using. At Indian Electric, we understand how important accurate
meter reading and billing is to our customers. The following information
will help you understand how your meter works and how you can assist our
meter readers to read and record your meter reading each month.
The electricity you buy from Indian Electric is measured in kilowatt-hours.
This measure reflects the number of kilowatts of electricity you use in
a given period of time. A kilowatt is equal to 1,000 watts. If you turn
on ten 100-watt light bulbs for one hour, you will use one kilowatt-hour
The electric meter on your home measures the number of kilowatt-hours
of electricity you use each month to heat your home and power your lights,
water heater, refrigerator, television, clock radio and other appliances.
Your meter may be either a dial meter or a digital meter.
