In order for EnergyCloud to accurately display your electriucity readings, the Kh for your meter must be set accurately in the EnergyCloud device settings.

The Kh of your meter is a 'multiplier' or 'power factor'. The Kh will be listed on the face of your meter as Kh or sometimes Ks or Kt.

Most digital meters are Kh 1.0 and most disk type meters are Kh 7.2, though there are some exceptions. Some GE digital meters list the Kh on the face of the meter as 10.0, but in reality, you must set the meter Kh to 1.0 in the device settings in EnergyCloud to achive a correct reading.

Setting your meter Kh is a simple as logging into your EnergyCloud account, click on the gear shaped icon on the top right of the dashboard, then click on 'Device Settings'. Set your Kh then click 'Save' at the bottom of the Device Settings page.
