You can track your household’s natural gas usage easily by reading your own natural gas meter.
If you read your meter the day you receive your bill, the meter reading you take should be higher than the reading on your bill because of the time lapse between the meter reader’s visit and your bill’s arrival in the mail.
Study the meter dials below. Each dial is labeled with a total gas volume equal to one revolution of the dial. For example, if the hand on the dial marked “1,000,000” goes all the way around, that means that one million cubic feet of natural gas were used.
Read the dials on the upper row from left to right. If the needle is between two numbers, record the lower of the numbers.
If you have any questions about your meter reading, feel free to call one of our area offices.
