Did the PSC have an answer as to why the house was using more electric than the appliance could demand?

There usually is a small adjustment screw on the front of the meter to calibrate it. NYSEG could have simply adjusted it prior to the PSC checking it. It sounds wrong how the PSC handled it. The PSC should have had an individual come and look at the defective meter while it was in operation on your home.

How about taking the reading then taking a picture of the meter showing the same reading. Log all the readings in a calendar book or something similar.

While photos sound good i don't think it would have changed anything, because i proved my readings were accurate by asking nyseg for a reading from them and i gave them the date and approximate time nyseg took the reading. NYSEG also took random readings without my knowledge and mine were the same as theirs.

I just had alot more of them.

My way of getting even with NYSEG is by looking into alternative power screw them. Pull the plug

AMEN to that Dink!

You are not going to beat these blood sucking thieves! Big money brings corruption and power. The only way we can fight them is don't use them.
If you feel you can't afford alternative power, add it up and I'm sure it would pay for it's self in a year in most cases.

And hide it from NYSEG I might add. They have this law going where you have to sell any extra to them, which is just another way to get in your pocket. You will have to talk with someone in the know there for the whole story, but you won't want them around.

Want them to read your meter every month? Turn your gas and electric off and use alternative power. They think people can't do that and are stealing their's. hahaha

This is what I did for two years after I got estimated 3 months in a row for a thousand dollars each month. Surprisingly enough this became exactly what I used! I burt wood and never turned my furnace on. I tried to fight them but to this day I still owe them that 3,000.

So after 2 years of living without NYSEG and letting the meter lady in to check my meter "It's a law they can come any time to read their meter, and they won't take it out and cap it off." The meter Lady says to me. "WOW! Your really doing it aren't you? Good for you. I wish I could do it! You wouldn't believe my bills!" I asured her I would.

Thanx Mask and i agree completely. We have found several ways of producing our own electric. If you don't mind telling me what you use for electric. Any information from anyone would be greatly appreciated. As to natural gas for heat, we are usualy gone for the heating season. It snows we GO. lol

It was really sad to listen to the hearing because NYSEG was in complete control of that hearing. I do have to admit i did get a new meter. I really expect NYSEG to put the old one back on for spite.

The PSC was arguing for the utility.

We have the gas/electric turned off on the cottage when not in use.

No a three month period. It took that long to get them to do something with the meter.
