“Dear PoP,

I’m not sure if you’ve done any stories about this in the past, but my Pepco bill has jumped from $68 in October to $330 in December. My roommate and I share a smaller two bedroom apartment in an older row house. We are very energy efficient and were actually out of town for 9 days in December while we racked up this bill- the heat was off and major appliance were unplugged. So my question is, does the bill seem reasonable for December or is there something wrong with my bill or heating system? Any help you or your readers can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.”

Has anyone had crazy increases to their Pepco bills? I’ve never had an electric bill jump that high? Has anyone had an error in billing before? If so, how did you remedy it?
