On your bill it has meter info. check to see if it says "actual" or "estimate" if its an estimate it could be wrong. also they dont have to read the meter up close they have a computer as long as there close enough to the meter it will read it.

Just because you don't see them doesn't mean they don't get the reading. MANY in my area have that derned radio crap. They ride up and collect the info via signal; they don't ever have to get out of the vehicle.

Also, do they have levelized billing? My bill never varies more than about $5 a month. They basically charge you the average every month but you must have at least 12 months of history before they can do it.

contact your public service commision they are the 'police' for Utility companies. I do'nt know about other states but we are regulated closely here and the PSC even makes us send random meters for checks every year. Either way pay the power bills gang or see someone like me roll up :lol: When I show up Pat Travers plays 'boom boom out go the lights':crackup:
