Woman’s Electric Bill Surpasses $284 Billion For One Month
She worried that it had something to do with her and her five children’s Christmas light display outside their home. Or perhaps the Christmas tree lights inside their home.
The bill was for over $284,000,000. Penelac, her electric provider, expected a minimum of $28,000 for the first installment.
Penelac apologized after a photo texted to the woman’s son of the eye-popping electric bill went viral.
The correct amount was $284.60 – still over her typical $180 per month rate.
