“Dear PoPville,

So I live in a converted 2 apartment townhouse near 15th and T. We live on the 1st floor and basement leve (3br) and the upstairs has 4 bedrooms on 2 floors. The guys upstairs moved in July 1 and just recieved a Pepco bill for over $750 dollars for 2 months. They called and Pepco says it’s correct. I’ve never experienced an electric bill this high. Both apartments have central air and the guys keep theirs around 75.

Any idea what the next steps should be? Is there someone they should contact?”

Anyone ever successfully argue a Pepco bill was too high?
