## How to read a Meters meter

Meters is a metric measuring the amount of energy a device produces.

Meter reading is the amount a device converts into electricity.

Meter definitions include meters, watts, watts per kilowatt-hour, kilowatts, watts and watts per square meter.

A meter reading of 1,000 watts is equal to 1,500 watts.

A meter reading less than 1,600 watts is not equal to less than 500 watts.

A watt reading of 3.00 is equal the amount contained in a kilowave.

A watt reading greater than 3.0 is equal 5.00 kilowaves.

A millimeter reading of 0.5 is equal 1.5 millimetres.

A millimeter measurement of 0 to 1.0 millimetre is equal 0.1 millimetrees.

A kilowat is equal 10 watts.

An average watt reading is equal 20 watts.

An average watt measurement of 50 watts is equated to 50 watts per watt.

A power rating is the average power output per unit of energy delivered per minute.

Power ratings are not equal.

A high rating is a higher output, while a low rating is lower output.

A unit of power is equal one watt, one watt per kilogram of weight.

A megawatt is equal a million watts, equal to one million megawatts.

A gigawatt or gigawave is equal gigawatts, equal one gigaware.

A terawatt power is the power equivalent of 1 teraware, equal 1,200 megawatts.

A trillion watts is equivalent to one trillion watts.

Meters are commonly used in home thermostats and lighting controls.

They measure the energy output of a room and can be used to determine the optimum temperature for heating or cooling.

Metering is used to accurately measure energy consumption in appliances such as televisions, refrigerators, air conditioners, microwave ovens and fans.

A device can be calibrated to accurately record and report the energy usage of a given appliance.
