There must be something wrong with my meter; I know I haven't used that much electricity!

Generally, if there is a problem with your electric meter it will be in your favor. The majority of the time an electric meter fails, it will slow down or stop, rather than speed up. You may have faulty appliances in your home to cause more usage than normal. If you have concerns that your electric meter is not working properly, you may contact a customer service representative to request JPEC test your meter for a negligible fee. JPEC is required to test every meter in the system approximately once every eight years. We do that by replacing your meter with a new one and bringing the old meter in for testing. If a problem with a meter is found, JPEC automatically reviews your account and makes any adjustments necessary (either up or down).
