They did take it every other month<quoted text>
You can report your own meter reading either online or by phone, to prevent bad estimates. Instructions to do this are on the back of your bill, it is very easy. This will help them make better monthly estimates in the future. Normally they take an actual reading every month (shown in a black bar on your usage graphs). Estimated bills are a gray bar. Taking readings every other month saves them money. What saves them money, saves you the customer money.
which is fine with me. I am usually busy working or doing other thing so the date
is passed by before I know it. Save the customer money...who are you kidding.
