Protect Yourself from Inaccurate Meter Readings
Sep 17, 2014

Whatever the time of year, we encourage people to be aware of possible inaccuracies in their meter readings.  It’s a topic that bears repeating and repeating…

Remember, your consumption is registered through meters that are connected to your account. This is the usage that you are billed on. If there’s too much snow or debris, it may prevent a meter reader from being able to access the meter, resulting in an estimated meter read.

The occasional estimated read isn’t typically a problem, but long-term estimated reads can result in big over-billing or under-billing, based on incorrect usage.

Avoid horrible surprises, and review Is Your Meter Actually Being Read? for ways to protect yourself this coming winter.
