Ram Meter Inc. - April 2021 Newsletter

April 5th, 2021:
We have just released our April 2021 Newsletter. Read on to see what we have in store this month.


While we have all been on the giving or receiving end of an April Fools prank, where did this silly holiday come from? Well, like many holidays, the exact origins of April Fools Day are a bit cloudy. One possible explanation comes from the Greco-Roman festival called Hilaria, which was a celebrated on March 25. The festival honored Cybele, an ancient Greek Mother of Gods, and its celebrations included parades, masquerades and jokes to celebrate the first day after the vernal equinox. Another explanation comes from the 16th century when the world switched from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar. New Years was moved from March 25 through April 1st up to January 1st and this ended up "fooling" everyone who was still using the old dates.

Wherever the origin came from, one thing we never joke about is our dedication to the products that we sell. So read on and check out what we have in store this month!

Did you know that your energy bill is charged based on the total kilowatt hour consumption over a stated time period; typically in a month by month format? In large enterprises and innovative companies, they have taken measures to capture this figure and create accountability for the energy usage through energy audits, engineering solutions, load-shedding, demand response and through the most basic and essential form; Kilowatt Hour metering.

But what exactly IS Kilowatt Hour Metering? Check out our blog article titled WHAT IS KILOWATT HOUR (KWH) METERING to learn more!
