The actual meter reading was less than HALF of that with everything I've done to lower my bill. The lady on the phone had to get a managers approval just to lower the bill that much and warned me that if I wasn't reading it correctly that I would have to pay for the difference on this months bill. I assured her that it was correct and the bill dropped to $120.
Estimated readings are a total scam, usually at least double the actual usage.
Check with JCP&L if you can submit your manual readings online - ours (gas & elect) have a web page for it.
