Andy - here below the Arctic Circle they send a meter reader out every month to read the meter.

The customer has no idea how much power they are using until they receive their bill the following month

We have had dozens of reports of monthly bills going from say $300 to over $1000 and then back to $300. The local utility sends an employee out to verify the correct operation of their meter and the customer is screwed. It happened to me last year where my bill jumped 150% of the highest it has ever been in 12 years and then returned to normal. As I said, it seems more than a coincidence.

PS - Thanks for getting the trim unit out so fast
