Why is the energy usage on my bill unusually high?

Why is the total dollars on my energy bill appear incorrect?

Why does my bill state that my meter reads are “Estimated”?

Why do I pay a “kVA” instead of a “kW” demand charge some months?

Am I on the correct tariff and/or rate for my facility?

I am building a new building, and the utility appears to be charging too much for a contribution for construction, and I was wondering, am I paying them too much?

The utility told me my meter was broken, and they replaced it with a new one, and they say I owe them a bunch of money, is that possible, and if so, why?
