We have been informed by a member in the Laois area of a meter read discrepancy. Recently a ESB meter reader visited his store and took note of the most recent meter reading – fast forward 2 weeks and our member receives a bill for a 12 day period for €6,000! After receiving this extortionate bill, our member checks his meter and finds a BIG discrepancy between the actual meter reading and the one that was submitted 2 weeks earlier. This was then brought to the attention of his electricity company and after MUCH going back and forth and disputing the meter readers meter reading, he was then issued a credit note against his account.
We would like to remind all members to keep their meter readings up to date and to also double check what meter readings are on their bills. It never hurts to double check!
