Reasons for abnormal electricity bill in CT?
I just moved to the New Haven area and my first full month's electricity bill was $96 while my upstairs neighbor, who has the exact same size apartment just directly above me, had a bill of $36.
I barely have anything plugged in and my neighbor says even when he uses his AC in the summer it's not that high. I've asked around and people who have comparable size apartments or larger homes tells me this is abnormal, and the only people who says it's not is the electricity company. They told me to do a breaker check to see if my apartment wires are crossed that would cause me to pay for other parts of the building as well. I don't know if this is likely, but does anyone have an idea of what other factors would cause this much of a difference? I have nothing plugged in but a refrigerator, stove, laptop on sleep most of the time, an alarm clock, and a cable modem. I can't understand how this would account for my bill being double that of my neighbors.
