NO. OF DAYS
No. of Days refers to the period for which you are being billed. You should always look carefully at this section as the number of days may change and thereby affect your Current Charges. Generally, JPS charges customers for periods of 25 – 32 days.
Your Billing Period tells you the exact dates for which you are being billed. Look for the thin grey strip in the centre of the bill with information like this written in it: From January 15, 2009 To: February 16, 2009.
READING (Rdg) TYPE
Your bill may be based on an Actual or Estimated reading.
