Utility Company Ripoff

When I opened my electric bill today I was shocked at the amount.  I am very careful with electric usage and was surprised to see that the bill was "estimated" owing to "weather" conditions.  What bullshit.  My meter is outside and easily accessible for reading and there has been no snow on the grounds for weeks.  When I called to complain Jersey Central Power & Light could only reiterate what was on the bill "-weather related issues".  Well I told them what I thought!  Why should customers be giving the utility company an interest free loan for a month until they actually read the meter?  Anyway I just filed a complaint with the NJ PUC.  Word to all – check your utility bill because they want to rip you off.
