Example of Meter Reading

When submitting meter information count all the dials (numbers) even if they have not moved. The multiplier is shown by any stationary (numbers painted on the dial face) zeros on the meter. In this case there is only one stationary zero. If there are no stationary zeros on the meter face type 1 for the multiplier. If there is a decimal point on your meter anywhere, make sure to include it in your meter reading.
