// Example result
{
    "meters": [
        {"uid": "12837438", "created": ...},
        {"uid": "12837438", "created": ...},
        ...
    ],
    "next": null,
}

This is the object that contains the Meter results for the request. We don't just return a straight list of results so that we can paginate results if needed. Currently, the maximum results per request is set at 1000.

Parameter Format Description Example
meters List(Meter) List of Meter results. [{"uid": ...}, ...]
next URL or null If there are more results than the page limit, this is a link to the next set of results. "https://utilityapi.com/api/v2/meters?after=234"
// Example MeterListing
{
    "meters": [...],
    "next": null,
}
