An electric meter is installed at the premises of a client in order to measure the electric energy a customer uses so that they can be billed. Most of this meters use KWh billing units which are read once for each period of billing. This KWh units measure the kilowatts of energy used per hour. Saving energy is among the important issues in our society today. Due to limited supply of energy it is every person’s responsibility to ensure the energy is saved. This can be done by using the KWh meters available online.
Most offices should use this kWh meters in order to enjoy various benefits arising from their usage.
