Why have I got an estimated bill?
The most likely reason you’ve received an estimated bill is because we couldn’t get to your meter to read it due to the access issues, extreme weather conditions or other reasons. Hence, the bill can only be issued with an estimated read. However, the meter read will be adjusted to the actual read when the next actual meter reading is available.
Why is my bill so high?
We understand that an unexpectedly high bill can be a bit of a shock. Bill increases reflect your lifestyle changes such as: moving to a bigger house, installing a pool, or just from using appliances that are less energy efficient.

It’s also worth comparing your current bill to the one for the same period from the last year.
