JCP&L is very notorious in my neighborhood for the "estimated" bill trick. Is this possibly an actual reading catching up with a bunch of wacky estimates?
No, Just Can't Power the Lights actually gave me an actual bill in Nov & Dec.
Trying to figure out where the frack the electricity went. Or, if the meter guy misread it. That's probably the likely cause. I'd buy 1,800kWh with the christmas lights and all, but 2,800 is out of control.
Go read it now and see if the current reading is less than the bill. You could add 60Kw per day since the last reading and see where you are. -- The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits.
Does your poco use automatic meter reading (where they use a radio in a truck to read it) or does the meter reader still come in the yard to read it. Maybe if you have a dog in the yard when the meter reader comes they estimate because they treat all dogs as vicious.
