Just got my latest power bill and I'm so happy. Yes, happy that I have a bill...
To explain. I moved into the flat in June. Got my first power bill... and almost collapsed. There's me & my cat. Yes, I had had two heaters and an electric blanket. But I wasn't profligate in my usage of power. At least, I didn't think so.
Amounts rounded up/down to nearest $5
June: $325 - meter read
July: $230 - estimated
August: $255 - meter read.
At which point I contacted the landlord to have the hotwater checked... since then...
September: $85 - meter read. And smart meter installed.
See - bills can make you happy!
PS - while the plumber was on the roof fixing my hotwater overflow, he noticed three other units had overflowing water. The unit next door was getting bills up to $800 a month! Why the hell they didn't have anything checked earlier I have no idea!
