Reading Your AMS Smart Meter

Your Advanced Metering System Smart Meter offers near-real-time usage data that helps you gain control over your electricity costs.

What You Can Learn

The meter’s screen displays three types of information:
1. The status of your electricity service.
o OPN means the electricity is off. CLS means the electricity is on.
2. Your electricity usage for the billing period.
o This shows your cumulative electricity usage in kilowatt hours (kWh) up to the current billing period. This is also the number that appears on your bill, so tracking the changes on a daily, weekly or monthly basis will show you how your energy saving efforts are making an impact.
3. Your electricity demand reading.
o This number is used by the Transmission and Distribution Utility to gauge the amount of electricity being used at any particular time.
