Woah that's insane, sorry to hear that.

My energy company also offers a service contract in spite of the service contract they charged me a $250 diagnostics fees when ac went down but your bill just takes it to the next level

Barring a refrigerator nothing is on in the apartment, my apartment utility bill is

lower than that where the appliances including central ac run frequently. Any thoughts on what could be causing this spike in utility bill?appreciate your inputs.



how about this bill for 4 days.  Vacant house 

 Clearly someone messed up with that reading.  Even looking at the numbers (8463-8482) vs kwh used (99981), someone messed up big time.
