    Sucks for her. What is she running that she has over a grand due for power? Maybe she should turn some lights off.

    People waste so much energy in this country. And you wonder why oil stays high... If we conserved 1/10 of 1 percent, nationally, it would make a big impact. and thats .01 percent!!

    Mel you so silly...."Turn off some lights" LOL but sometimes we have things in our home that are faulty that needs repair....I had a fridge it used to hum I took it for nothing, but when I had the energy conservation rep from my electric company come out to check it turns out the fridge was burning most of the energy so they gave me a whole new fridge...LOL

    My gas & electric was $930 in December. It had nothing to do with waste, just a huge old drafty house and high gas prices.

    Exactly. I'm a big fan of Number 1 outside. Conserves water, and electric for the 20 seconds the light is on. I'm saving!

    Lol Ben!
    It does happen though. Nextel shut me off a few years back for 30 cents. Just a typo when I paid the bill online. Needless to say, it cost them 50 bucks when I threw a fit. I had been a customer paying 200 bucks a month, never late for several years prior to that. I told them I was leaving and they gave me a credit on my account. Course now I'm with TMO lol.
    Lovell, even being an old inefficient house, 900 clams is ridicculous!!!!! I have a newer average 3 bedroom colonial and the highest I got this winter was like $385. Man I feel good! Now I drive a lot and my Mobil bill is running $800-$1000 a month, but I think I'd cry if my gas/electric was that high!

    Now that I read the story, nothing surprises me. Its Flint, aka "Little Detroit" total mismanagement of everything. People working for the unions making $60K a year, still figuring out a way to collect welfare. Joke of a city. ( I live in Ann Arbor like an hour south of there)
