Still estimating my bills

Dear Editor,

I am that resident on Vlissengen Road, Kitty, who complained about the estimated billing by GPL last year. It should be pointed out that these bills continue to be excessive, while I endeavour to utilise energy saving appliances.

The GPL never sends a meter reader, even though I leave the gate open. Instead, hundreds of kwhs are estimated into my account, without taking into consideration the limited energy I utilise.

There are many mansions which are well lit but are billed for less than half the amount I pay. Only recently, a corroded GPL cable caused several appliances to be destroyed in my house and to add to injury, another huge bill came.

I plead for an alternative to stop paying GPL a huge fraction of my salary.

Yours faithfully,

S Singh
