Well I just had to post this.
I have just had my two monthly electric bill (69 days) of 356,07 euros. My normal consumption per day is around 9kw, this bill runs at 27,14kw a day
and we were away for nearly two weeks of this period
The amount they say I have used is 1000kw more than normal, I have checked the reading now and the last reading of the electric company, and it works out to 9.07kw/day, which is normal.
It seems that one of the didgets (thousand didget) of this 20 year old meter has moved from 3 to 5 in the last billing time.
I have done all the calcs and it is obvious that that is what has happened, exactly 1000kw too much.
I have complained that the meter is wrong and has to be changed, my history of consumption is always around 9kw per day, over 10years!!!!!!!
I am expecting, from what I have heard, that I have to pay the full amount, 3 times my normal consumption, and they will say that the meter is ok.
On top of this I will have to pay for one of their engineers to come and change the meter
I have been paying rent for this meter for 15 years, I have bought several new ones for the amount I have paid for rental every two months
If I do not get satisfaction, I will be putting this in the hands of my lawyers, more cost, I am totally fed up
A not so cool
