Funny thing happened this last billing period. In May I called to gripe about my 1000+ kwh power bill that occurs every month in my 1700SF home with no heating. I was asking for advice and about programs. Well, the next day I had to reset my clocks since the power had blinked out. I then noticed that I got a brand new digital power meter on the house. Cool, easy to read and I marked the date. Over the next few days I replaced an old fridge with an estar model, swapped out lights to LED, shut off my energy hog hot tub, and installed a whole house power monitor that logs consumption and instant current flow. My power consumption dropped from 33 per day to 23 as read on my meter and double checked with the whole house monitor. The power company freaked out. Thought something must be broken and instead of using the readings from the new meter they just applied my consumption from the previous month after thinking about it for an extra three weeks. The overcharge is only about 30$. I wonder what will happen next month when they see the same low consumption.
