    ouch!!

    nothing changed? take a photo of the meter quick..and email somebody. i bet someone misread the meter...call them, they get curious when things take a huge jump like that as well.

    you recently get a "smart meter"?

    Do you have a heat pump? If so and it's using the auxilliary resistance strip heaters, that can run your bill sky high in a hurry. Check your thermostat and make sure it's not set to "emergency heat."

    You can also take a look at your meter and see if the reading on the bill agrees with the meter.

    Ryan, JCP&L are notorious for estimating bills. Does it say estimated or actual on your statement? Believe me, you ain't the only one who wants to kill them. I've considered it many times.

    The meter is easy to read....just get the "actual" read off it.....human error is common on a read.....

    I called and my actual meter read was still high. Really high. They're going to investigate it. Yeah right. They'll probably say I owe more. What I don't get is a turn off all my lights never leave any of them on. My heat is barely on. I'm not running my pool anymore. I don't have anything else on than normal everyday usage. How could it more than triple.
