Let me start off by saying I live in New York, if that makes a difference. I've had my volt for about a month now, and have received my first electricity bill since buying. To my horror, my bill went up from about $350 gas AND electric - to $850! I nervously called ConEdison to see if there was a problem with my meter or something, in which they sent a specialist. They told me essentially nothing was wrong, and that's just how much it costs to charge. The lady even told me about a website that backs up this information that I don't remember. I am speechless at this point, since from my research my electricity bill only should have gone up about $60 a month. I charge usually at 11pm, so most charging is done off peak with my 110 charger. Am I doing something wrong here? It doesn't make sense at all, who would buy a Volt if it meant that the energy costs would be $500 a month? If anyone could please shed some light on this situation I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
