My meter data from my utility seems very high. Could this be an error? Follow

Yes, there could be an error in the units that you've chosen for this meter. 

In Portfolio Manager, we use "M" to represent million, and "k" to represent thousand:

Mcf million cubic feet
Mlbs million pounds
kcf thousand cubic feet
klbs thousand pounds

However, some utilities use "Mcf" to represent thousand cubic feet (and "Mlbs" to represent thousand pounds). Unfortunately, there isn't an industry standard on this abbreviation. Because we know utilities use both conventions to express 1,000 (kcf and Mcf), we always show the written out equivalent when we have you select units ("kcf - thousand cubic feet").

Why did we chose M to represent million?
