Action of the Week
  • Households: 75
    Read your power meter monthly and submit kWh (kilowatt-hour) usage to your utility

    You’ve probably noticed that your electric meter is not read every month; for those months between meter readings, an estimate is calculated. Not having actual monthly readings will make it hard to determine whether or not you are saving energy compared to the previous month or year. You will have a more accurate picture for tracking your energy usage and savings when you have actual, not estimated, data.

    You can read your own meter each month and use the phone (call 1.800.255.3443 and say “meter reading”) or visit the Potomac Edison website to submit your information. Instructions for reading and reporting your electricity usage appear on your monthly billing statement.
