I live in Dryden New York and I am renting an apartment that has a
Sangamo Electric Meter type J3VS-11
I find it a bit different since it has two set of dials labeled H and L I am thinking this is for measuring Peak and Off Peak power separately?
My biggest concern is that I am paying alot of money each month for electricity for a really small apartment, and I am concerned that possibly I am paying for electrical use to another apartment since I am renting an apartment from a home that has been chopped up into smaller apartments.
I am just wanting to be familiar with my Electrical Meter, so that when I do shut off breakers to measure power consumption I can accurately read and understand what 100 Watts of current draw will look like on this meter over an a set amount of time.
This meters appears to be a time of use meter. Also it has an internal multiplier of 10. The H reading should be for on peak usage and the L reading should be for off peak usage. Each reading should be multiplied by 10 for the actual reading.

NYSEG calls that the day/night meter. The company charges two different rates. The time switch sealed with the white seal is reset monthly to ensure accuracy on the time switch itself. if you look at the time switch, you can see it's got all 24 hours stamped on it.
