The Telescope Array Low energy Extension (TALE) experiment in Utah, U.S.A., consists of 10 atmospheric fluorescence telescopes and 80 Surface Detectors (SDs) spread over an area of $21~{\rm km}^2$. The SD array consists of 40 SDs at $400~\rm m$ spacing and 40 SDs at $600~\rm m$ spacing. The TALE-SD was completed in February 2018 and has been in steady operation since then, triggering at a rate of about 30 air shower events in 10 minutes. We have developed the software to measure the energy spectrum of cosmic rays from the data obtained by TALE-SD. The performance of the software was evaluated by using air shower events generated by Monte Carlo simulation. We estimate that when the energy of the primary cosmic ray is $10^{18.0}~\rm eV$, the accuracy of energy determination is 20\%, the accuracy of arrival direction determination is 1.5°, and the aperture is $16~\rm km^2 ~\rm sr$. We also compared the MC and Data to see if they were consistent. In this presentation, we will report these results.
