Texas Woman’s Electric Bill Tops $1 Million
And you think your electricity bill is high? Well an Abilene, Texas woman recently opened her latest statement to find out she had been charged nearly $1.4 million.
Kristin Harriger immediately called her provider, Potentia Energy. She quickly learned that her bill was an error.
The utility provider also excused a $66,000 late fee listed on the bill.
Potentia told the Abilene Reporter-News it had flagged the bill and had marked it to be held, but the bill mistakenly got sent out.
The bill said Harriger was being charged 100,000 cents, or $1,000, per kilowatt hour. The normal rate ranges from 8.2 cents to 12.1 cents.
