Dear PoPville – “our Pepco bill for Dec-January is $245, over $100 more than last month”

“Dear PoPville,

I just got our Pepco bill for Dec-January and it is $245, over $100 more than last month. I have NEVER had an electric bill this high. My place is a 2 bed, 1 bath condo. That is higher than my friend’s bill for her 6 person row house in Columbia heights. The weirdest thing of all is that when I checked the daily usage in my bill, my highest daily use for reported for the day in January when we had an over 24 hour power outage. How can my bill possibly be accurate? Are they just making this stuff up as they go along?

What are my recourses for disputing this bill?

P.S. We only moved in about 2 months ago (mid October), and the place was empty for about 6 months before that, so there is no historic data.”
