what do pay for power a month? I have a major beef with my power company, they claim I am consuming over 2000 KWH a month and I look around here and its almost impossible. my mom uses half that in her house and she has 100 more 24/7 items running there. half the time my house is dead dark. will a bad meter give a high reading? maybe some fault in the wiring? I am clueless. I know I cat be using that much power, at the hight of winter last year I was only useing 990 to 1100 a month, and I was using 110 space heaters, now I have 220 basebords with 1/3 the amp consumption! time for me to go pay the power mafia a visit. for 2 months I havent had the baseboards on at all, it hasnt been that cold at night! anyone ever prove the electric company WRONG?
