Types of Electricity Meters
There are three primary meter types in use today, including:
- Electromechanical meters. These are the meters you’re likely the most familiar with. You can generally see them on the outside of many homes and businesses. These meters read electricity usage by way of a non-magnetic metal disc. The disc is activated through electricity usage in your structure, and rotates to count the units of electricity used (minor fact: electromechanical meters do utilize electricity to operate, but the energy used is not counted by the meter. In other words, it’s operation is irrelevant to your energy usage).
- Electronic meters. Electronic meters use a digital LCD or LED display to accurately mark energy usage. These meters have some interesting advantages, including various additional readings such as max load, and peak-time usage figures. In some cases, an electronic meter can directly transmit readings to your supplier.
- Solid-state meters. These are the most recent meter types in circulation. These units use LED displays similar to electronic meters, and can essentially be viewed as simply a more stable and reliable technological advancement. SS meters offer the least variability in readings, and the most additional readout options.
