what does the red light on a key meter(electric)mean?

we have a southern electric key meter and the little red light next to the display seems to be constantly on or flashing. even if we turn virtually everything off, and we seem to be burning through electric really quick.used to use £15-20 p/week now £30-35 p/week.

not sure what this light is supposed to show,does it only come on when using a lot of electric or is it meant to be on constantly.

    The little red light just means you have electricity present at the meter, it has nothing to do with how much you are using.

    The light usually lets you know that the supply is live and/or it lets you know that you are using 0.1 of a kilowatt of electricity. Also a key meter is the most expensive electricity. if you can get it changed to a quarterly meter, if you go onto the electricity board web site that should show you the charges, so you can decide for yourself.

    ...and because pink gentle facilitates you to make certain at evening. White gentle at evening makes the scholars of the attention constrict, and pink gentle does not...for that reason, submariners and different ships at sea at evening use pink lights furniture.
