    dumb ass question maybe but electric meter has off peak, normal and total readings toggled by pushing one button.
    I want to submit my readings but unsure what is what. Readings are r2 and r1 plus the obvious T

    Anyone?

    If you have a recent bill (ideally the most recent one), you should be able to see what sort of numbers to expect for the 'off peak' and 'normal' meter readings - so, unless the numbers are pretty similar, that should tell you 'which is which'.

    Kind Regards, John

    Depends on the meter.
    The other way is to see which one increases during the day, that will be the 'normal' one.
