We have lived here in the DR about two years. All-in-all, our experience with electric billing problems has probably been "better than average" or in other words "pretty poor." Our meter seems to be read regularly, but I have reason to believe that our 6-700 KWH of supposed monthly usage is perhaps 20-50 percent more than we actually consume. I understand that it is legal to install your own electric meter to double check it. Are there companies here in the capital that do this for residential users that aren't terribly expensive or is there anyone who has pursued that option? Also, we definitely do not want our meter replaced by another meter that runs even faster!
