This was my electricity bill the other month. As you can see, I have one of those meters that get read every month by the company… except apparently something went wrong in April. But that didn’t stop them from clearly overestimating how much electricity I used!
Even in the middle of winter I used less! I know that, in the end, I got a lower bill the next month… but imagine someone who’s just barely making ends meet, imagine they have a tight budget for utilities and one month they are asked to pay 50€ instead of the maximum of 35€ they’ve ever had to pay before. That’s tough!
