There are many different kinds of meter boxes that are being used today. Many older models are what is called electrolytic and they use mercury to measure electrical usage and have been outdated for many years. Today most electric meters are digitally controlled by using a variety of circuits and little computer chips. This allows the meter to record not just electricity consumption but additional information as well, like the time and date when the electricity was utilized, and also help to create invoices. Electric meters are really common, and can be seen just about anywhere electricity is used. Nearly all residencies will have a minimum of one electric meter set up, and this can be of numerous different types. For instance, some meters are produced especially for different homes such as an economy rate meter or a, pay as you go type meter. Pay as you go type of meters refers to electricity bought in advance. This is done by the use of a payment type credit card or payment 'key'.
The card or key is put into a special purpose electronic outlet, and a specific amount is paid for the information uploaded onto the card or key. The card or 'key' is then put into the correct electric meter, which gets the uploaded information. The most common unit of measurement is the kilowatt hour, and the demand is calculated in watts and averaged over a duration of time, often a quarter of an hour.
