    Something is horribly wrong. My gas and electric bill went up about 40% when I had a bunch of guests over the holidays, but 400% would really freak me out.

    Have you started a grow operation in your basement?

    Look for extension cords running to your neighbors.

    I didn't think the 75 plants would do much. Must be those lamps. :)

    I recently started getting letters with my electric bill scolding me because I use more electricity than 80% of my neighbors

    I pay the bill it should be my business how much I use.

    Where I live they sometimes estimate our bills, and then there's the 32day bill. Feb. should be a cheaper bill, only 28 days.

    Do you have electric heat? Maybe the new electric vibrator your significant other just bought? :) Maybe someone read the meter wrong - go out and read it yourself and see how the current reading compares to what they have on the bill.

    Your meter reader may have misread the meter or transposed some numbers. Pretty common. Have he power company re read the meter. They will try to tell you to pay the bill and they will correct it next month. Dont do it. Tell them you will file a complaint with the PUC. Any electrician should be able to read the meter for you.
    If you have a large dog in the yard, meter readers wont come in and use binoculars. Some will deliberately inflate the bill to force you to keep the dog in.
