Maybe I need to do a "Read me first" The little spreadsheet does the following:I have had a look at your spreadsheet, run a few of my bills through it, and don't get what problem it solves. All it seems to do is verify what my supplier has charged me.
Abroad for gas, ECB snd water your annual consumption is based on the prior year and then you pay by DD each month orbi monthly. I read the meters myself though the odd year some comes as well.Using existing technology and my little spread-sheet I can produce better more accurate estimates than the ESB when they miss meter readings. The new meters wili not reduce costs for the consumer they'll do the opposite (again!)
[EDIT] If ESB/ESB networks cannot estimate consumer bills accurately, how do they forecast their own energy needs?
