LIPA Bill, $2,261.59

Posted by Shane

So I had a bit of a problem with LIPA (Long Island Power Authority) with my bill. First two times they over-charged me because they “estimated” on how much I had used, given the fact that I only been here a month and I only really used 63 KWH between September and for the month of October around the same amount. After calling them about it I told them what my starting reading was and the current reading.

I was told that I was going to get an adjusted bill in a few days, and that it would be credit back on my account. Coming back from work tonight, I check my mail…


I was in shock.They changed my “turned on reading” to the number to today’s number, and kept the old number from the old and “wrong” bill the new number. So instead of being like $182 and change it’s $2,261 and change!!!!! 11,413 KW instead of like 63 KW.

Now it’s Friday and they are closed until Monday 8am! So… you can imagine on how much of a shock I was in when I got this bill. Anyway, Monday phone call will be interesting. I’ll let you know how it goes!
