Killowatt Hour Meters (20amp rated)

Hey folks, I'm looking for an electric meter, like the ones you see at a campground that has long term sites, or on your house, that measures kWhs used. Only needs to be single phase 120 volt rated and handle up to 20-30 amps. I'm just trying to find one for the next time I go fulltime if its back at the same spot so I can figure out how much electricity I'm using and can pay the person accordingly. (based on his rate from his bill).

Purchase an inline watt meter. It will tell you all kinds of information.

The above link is what many use the mini-meter (just for your application). Outdoor and placed and the base of the shore power pedestal.

The Kill-A-Watt is a cheap way to measure up to 15A of power consumption. You can buy one for $22-$25 in several places.

Actually wound up getting donated an old Duncan Electric 100 amp 2 wire 4 dial electric meter. It used to be on a power pole for a street light up in a small town in Washington. When the intersection was damaged due to a car wreck, the linesmen came out to repair it and the new hardware was 240v 3 wire, so the old meter had to be retired.

Currently designing the free standing pedestal to mount it on. Came with the round enclosure that it was plugged into, so all I have to do is thread it onto some new pipe.
