Application for Wrong Electricity Bill

To,

The manager

[Name of Electricity Company]

Respected sir, 

I beg to draw your kind and sympathetic attention to the following fact. I have been living in (location name) for the last 5 years.

My consumer Id is (consumer id no). Today I was shocked to receive the current electric bill (bill no) for an amount of (total amount). My electricity bill amounts generally range between (amount) to (amount). The bill for these last three months is almost double the amount of my regular bill.

I investigated the matter from my side to find out the error. I was quite shocked to see the reading part of the last three months’ electricity bill. There seems to be a mistake in the reading for the last months.

It is mentioned as [mention reading details] instead of [mention reading details] as the final reading of the last months. As such, there is a mistake in [mention calculation] units in the bill.

I kindly request you to correct the current bill and issue a fresh bill for these three months. Otherwise please adjust the excess amount to be paid by me for the current wrong bill amount in the next month’s bill payment. I have also captured a photo of the latest meter reading. Please go through that to verify the meter reading. 

I request you to investigate this matter seriously and if you want, you can send your person to check the meter.

I appreciate it if this matter of unfair excess billing is resolved at the earliest. Waiting for your immediate action.

Thank you very much.

Regards

Subject: Complaint about miscalculation of billing

Respected sir/ madam, 

I am writing this letter to express my dissatisfaction with the electricity bill for the month of (write month name). Over the past few months, my electricity bills have been rising steadily. But this month’s electricity bill has exceeded all limits and it is out of my reach now. 

I have been living at (mention your address) for the last 6 months away from my family for work purposes. The electricity bill for the first 2-3 months was normal.

The problem started in the month of (mention month), and I came to know that my electric bill is much higher than normal. And seeing that, I thought maybe I made a mistake, maybe I overused the electricity.

The same thing repeated in the succeeding month, so I tried to compare my electricity bill with other people with similar kind of household like me and I saw that the units consumed are much lower than mine In this new city, I felt very helpless and I began to explore the matter myself, and I realized maybe there is some power leakage in my household., I tried to contact you by phone but there was no appropriate reply, I also tried to contact you by mail but you turned a deaf ear or ignored me.  

So here I am requesting you to please pay your kind attention to this matter. Unless I have no option but to take this proceeding further. 

Please do not hesitate to contact me on (mention your contact number) or email at (mention email address) in order to resolve this unfavorable situation. 

I am attaching all the required documents with this application. (Attach all the required documents)

Waiting for your quick response. 

Thank you very much.

Sir, I stay at my house very rarely, I stay in the office from (Mention time) to (mention time) and I don’t have a lot of electronic appliances in my house.

Still, my power consumption is much higher. You can also check my last 6 months’ electricity consumption and billing amount from your system to be aware of my monthly consumption cycle.

Complaint Letter for Electricity Meter

To, 

Area manager

[name of electricity company]

Respected sir, 

I beg to draw your kind and sympathetic attention to the following fact. I have been living in this city for the last 5 years. My consumer ID is ——

I want to inform you that the electric bill for the last 3 months has increased continuously but my uses are still constant. I am quite shocked to receive the electricity bill for my house for the last three months.

It is just not possible to have used so much electricity in the last three months as I was out of the station with my family for one month and the house was locked. The bill for these 3 months is almost twice the amount of my regular bills.

I kindly request you to correct the current bill and issue a fresh bill for these three months. Otherwise please adjust the excess amount to be paid by me for the current wrong bill amount in the next month’s bill payment.

I request you to look into this matter seriously and send your person to check whether somebody is doing theft of electricity from my meter or the meter is faulty.

If there is an issue, please replace it. Please inform me the reason for getting so much excess bill and when you are going to send your person to check my meter.

I appreciate it if this matter of unfair excess billing is resolved at the earliest. Waiting for your immediate action.

Thank you very much.

Yours sincerely

Power Complaint Letter To Electricity Company

[Location]

Respected sir

I, on behalf of the inhabitants of [location], beg to draw your kind attention to the following fact.

Our area, a highly populated one, is at present suffering from the unavailability of power for two weeks. There are many school and college students in our area. The students are unable to study in the evening without proper light facilities. In this weather ACs, and coolers are not working.

There is hardly any protection from the uncomfortable weather during the day. The people are no longer been able to carry out their regular day-to-day activities. My locality is not at all a safe place. The place has turned into an accident-prone zone.

The electricity supply wires are old and the transformer is not in very good condition. The main trouble is due to the inefficient functions of either the wires or the transformer. Unless the wires and transformer are replaced, the problem will continue to exist.

Under this situation, I would request you to take steps as soon as possible for the sake of our people. 

Thank you very much.

Regards 

(Your name)
