New electric meters

Recommended Posts

"Smart" meters.......:rolleyes:

They are just using these as a means to cut jobs. Penelec has not read my "stupid" meter in 4 months and have just estimated (of course they always estimate low)  my monthly bills so I am awaiting a hammer job when they finally read it.

I never let them estimate. I read my meter every other month and submit the reading online. Same with the gas.

I've had one on my house since it was built a year ago.  It has never been wrong.  I'm a nerd and I track all of my finances on a spreadsheet.  I know exactly what my bill will be on the day of the reading.

Ours has been in for several months and we just got the first bill based on the readings from it.  The bill jumped significantly and I haven't really done any checking to see if it was estimated or read or whether it was accurate.  Probably should do that before I complain.

Our smart meter was installed a month ago or so. My electric bill went up but we had company and the a/c was running so it is probably right.  I will have to check my utility spreadsheet for comparison.

Yesterday morning before 8 the Penelec meter reader was making her rounds.

you are not the only one whose bill has jumped. They will tell you that your old meter must have been reading slow.

 Is there any way you can track your usage to make sure it's correct?

Got mine last week, Penelec.

They changed mine and I didn't even know it, they never even informed us they were pulling the power to change it.

We got a letter in the mail that they were changing them.

I got a letter as well. In fact, when they did pull it, the power was never interrupted - no blinking clocks, PF readings on appliances, etc.
