How do electric meters read power usage?

• Analogue electric meters require monthly readings whereas modern digital meters automatically send energy usage data to the utility company. Regardless of which meter is fitted on your premises, both measure electricity usage via kilowatt hours. This is the measurement of watts consumed in a given time. Digital meters are considered to be more accurate in their readings than the analogue counterparts while also recording net electricity usage if your business has wind turbines or solar panels installed. The direction of energy flow is displayed on the meter’s screen.
