For those of you living in the Village of Round Lake Beach , you should have received a mailing notifying you that within TWO business days of August 27, 2012, your electric supplier will be automatically switched over to First Energy Solutions. That is, unless you have opted out or were already being supplied by a company other than Com Ed.
The reason for this post is to show you how to read your electric meter so that YOU have a record of what your current reading is in order to compare it with your FINAL meter reading from Com Ed and your BEGINNING meter reading with First Energy Solutions. On occasion I have had the misfortune of having my meter incorrectly read by the Com Ed man who enters my backyard to read it. Since I have a small rope tied around my gate to keep kids from opening it, I can always tell when my meter has been read because the man ties it differently when he leaves. Thus, i will be able to tell on what day it was read and then read the meter myself and compare with my next bill.
Below is a short video that shows how simple the meters are to read. Simply remember that you ALWAYS use the LOWEST number no matter which way the particular dial is rotating.
