A Woman In Texas Get An Electric Bill For Over $1.3 Million
We all know that the summer months mean higher electricity bills. But a Texas woman got the shock of a lifetime when she opened her bill and it was over a million dollars.
During the summer months, I’m not at all surprised to open my electric bill and it be over $100. That is the norm. But I would totally freak out if it was over a million dollars. That is exactly what happened to a lady in Abilene, Texas.
She was going through her mail and got to her electric bill. She opened it and was shocked to find that the bill was for $1,381,783.92. The Abilene resident immediately called her provider, Potentia Energy, who found the error.
While most electric companies are charging between 8.2 and 12.1 cents per kilowatt hour, she was being charged 100,000 cents or $1, 000 per kilowatt hour. Her bill even included a late fee of $66, 000.
It was fixed and she is being sent a new bill immediately, late fee waived.
So the next time you complain about a high electricity bill, just be thankful it isn’t $1 million.
