Georgia Power — double billing
Why and where is it legal and fair for a utility company to double bill in certain areas? I lived in my apartment for 1year and 6mos. now. Last summer i saw my bill reach for the high heavens! This year its even worse! I called and asked why is my bill 250 -$300 when im not using that much energy? I was told this company has areas where they double bill to offset other charges. Being a single mom of 3 elementary school children, cant afford to be double billed! I unplug my cell charger, i dont have a washer dryer, i use power surge protectors as well, and i dont run my dishwasher unless its a full load. oh yeah my place is a 2bdrm flat apt! So if i can't make a full payment on a bill thats near $100 sometimes, what makes them think i can pay $300?! Even with a service extension is almost impossible. I have been getting by, by paying this bill alone not including other bills that have to be paid by the skin of my teeth! this really should be illegal and told before you start service with them. I have enough day-to-day stress as it is. Thanks Georgia Power for being soooooo considerate and raping my wallet. Im moving to a new area next year!
