You will need
  • - receipt form;
  • - current and previous meter readings;
  • calculator.
Look carefully at the receipt for payment of electricity. It usually consists of two forms (invoice and notice), but depending on the region and the organization-recipient of payment, their form may vary.
Enter your account number (specific to the organization) in the designated field. If you don't know or have forgotten it, see the service contract with this organization (for example, if you live in Moscow – Mosenergo).
Enter your personal details: surname, name, patronymic and address of residence (the one where you installed the counter on which the payment is made) in the appropriate boxes.
In the field "payment for" or the like, record the month and year for which you will pay for electricity.
View actual receipts for electricity meter readings specified in the column "current". Write them down in a new receipt in the column "previous".
Remove the current readings of your meter and enter them in the box with the appropriate name.
Subtract the number of current kilowatt/hours previous meter readings.
Multiply the number (number consumed per a certain time unit of kilowatt/hours) cost per kilowatt/hour (your rate).
The resulting multiplication product will be the amount payable for electricity. Enter it in the box labeled "sum" or "total".
At the very bottom of the receipt to sign your name, indicate day, month and year the payment.
The second receipt form is filled in the same way, in addition, it can be any additional fields provided by the organization of your "sales".
If you are paying electricity for the first time on a new counter, with at the beginning zero readings, the field "previous" in the receipt is not filled in field "current" is the number of kilowatts, which at the moment shows the display unit of accounting. Then multiply this figure by the cost per kilowatt/hour.
