OP paid for Site PLUS Metered Electricity

CG pays for ALL electricity used on property....(OP notified them/they are obvious owners of meter...he pays them not the Utility company)

They can/will back charge him based on 'estimate' of their previous usage (seasonal site....OP is not just a monthly user but long time user)

Electric Company I worked for would/did send make up billing based on 'estimates'/previous usage if/when meter could not be read
It is NOT rocket science....just accounts receivable/billing

Simple..........




Odd thing is NO response/follow up by OP
So who really cares!


Is it time for your medication or mine?

So in other words ,just continue with your free electricity , although you should be paying for it.

He notified them. His conscience is clear. He can't force them to fix the problem.


Sure his conscience is clear, does that change the fact he should be paying the same as the rest . Sounds like from a few of you its okay as long as he can get away with it, he did his part [emoticon]


What is he supposed to do? Stop using electricity? If he has notified the owners that the meter seems to be broken, yet the owner still doesn't do anything to fix it, it's not the OP's fault. OP isn;t "getting away with anything". He's done what he could do. If the owner is so little concerned, or so lazy to do anything, it's on the owner.

No , he’s not supposed to quit using electricity, but what is it you and others don’t get . It’s coming back on him eventually in a big bill when they finally wake up to the error . Understand something here, he is using electricity that he’s supposed to pay for , thats seems to be eluding some of you . I would want to get it straightened out , and as I have said before he's had ONE verbal conversation. Sure it’s on the owner , and eventually it’s on him to pay up .

He did want to get it straightened out. That is why he went and told them of the problem. What is he supposed to do, hold a gun on them till they fix it? All he can do is report it. It is up to them to take it from there. He reported it. He did his part.

As far as a "big bill" later, he could report it, in writing, every day for 3 months and it will have no effect on whether he finally gets that bill. To prevent that bill, he would have to FORCE them to fix it, and that is NOT his responsibility, or right.

Very simple, if you have any idea what your monthly use is, put that amount into an alligator jar every month. If you do get bill later on that would make you blush, then open your alligator jar and you have funds available.
What's an alligator jar, same as a crocodile or shark jar. Money only goes in until it's needed to pay the bill.

Thats pretty much what my point has been, somewhere along the line he's going to have to pay, there is no free lunches. Doesn't matter what he has done ,doesn't change the fact, its not free electricity .

If that was your point, I completely misunderstood you. I took your posts to mean he should continue pursuing getting the CG to fix the meter. He is under no legal or moral obligation to continue pursuing the issue once he had reported it to management. If I misunderstood you, I apologize.
