How to Read My Bidirectional Meter

How to Read My Bidirectional Meter

Your bidirectional meter measures power flows going into and out of your home or business. The difference between a bidirectional meter and a traditional meter is that the bidirectional meter has three different readings: (1) delivered, (2) received, and (3) net; whereas the traditional meter only has one reading: (1) delivered.


DL (Delivered) is the power flow going into the home.


RC (Received) is the power flow coming out of the home.


NT (Net) is the difference between DL and RC.

Using the examples above:
(DL) 04552 kWh
(RC) 00489 kWh
(NT) 04063 kWh

These measurements are cumulative. You will need to read the meter (1st of month) and log the measurements then read the meter again (1st of next month) to compare the reading.

NT less than 0 is displayed as 100000 minus the reading. For example, if NT is -5, the display will read 99995.
