  • My average monthly bill is almost $300, but we've got 7 people and a 2000 square foot home, not to mention a swimming pool (electric pump) and A/C going right now.

  • Oh my! I agree with the others. Maybe call them and see if they can do one of those free house audits to see if you have energy escaping anywhere. I'd be mad though too! No AC and your bill is still that high! Hopefully they just made a mistake!

  • Are they reading your meter or sending you an estimated bill?

  • That brings to mind a question, how do we really know what our meter said? Could they lie ever and put down that we used more than we really did? just curious
