Why Do People Get Electrical Readings Wrong?

IMG_1289

We had a problem with our readings for our electric meter before and so did another one of our neighbours. What had happened was it was a new guy reading the meters and he didn’t know where they were so “guessed”. The Photo above isn’t a football stadium floodlight its actually the electrical meters for buildings no wonder people get the wrong readings sometimes. I was sat in traffic and decided to grab a photo as its the first time I have seen meters in a flat layout. Often they are clustered and only by “knowing” which one was your meter would you actually know which one to get your reading.
