Hydro usage is suddenly through the roof... what can we do? : PersonalFinanceCanada
I recently moved into a 2 Bed 2 Bath apartment in downtown Toronto to move in with one of my current coworkers. She had been living there for 2 years already, and has been consistently paying ~60 dollars a month for hydro + water with her previous roommate.Around the time I moved in in mid June, our usage went through the roof. I'm talking, using around 30-40 kWh of electricity PER DAY. Our last bill is around $210. Our next bill is projected to be even more than that. We've already reached Tier 2 of electricity usage. We're going crazy trying to figure out what's wrong. In previous summers, the usage was still around 10 kWh per day with AC in July. We've tried turning off the AC for the whole day, which doesn't make a single dent in usage. In fact, on days when we're actively using more electricity (baking, turning the AC up), we seem to be using less electricity according to our sub metering company's website. There is no correlation to our actual usage and what the billing company says we are. My roommate and I are not home half the day and when we are, we barely use anything other than our laptops and a couple of lights. There have been no new appliances. I even purchased a smart plug to measure our fridge's electricity usage and it's within normal range ( ~1 kWh).I've literally called the billing company every single day to sort this issue out, but the company insists that it's not a problem on their end. They're more or less refusing to come to our apartment to inspect the meter unless we agree to pay them $100. We've had the building maintenance people come up to our apartment and look at the HVAC, which was apparently normal as well. I've done a load test which only identifies that the electricity usage is indeed coming from our apartment.I'm at a loss. I have no explanation for this but it's also frustrating dealing with these companies who refuse to mobilize and investigate. At this point, I am wondering if the neighbours are somehow funnelling our electricity for a grow-op or something. Who can I go to to escalate this issue? Has anyone encountered this? via /r/PersonalFinanceCanada
