ERIE, Pa. (AP) – A Pennsylvania woman says she went online to check her electric bill and was stunned at the amount – more than $284 billion.
The silver lining was that she didn’t have to pay the full amount until November 2018 – only a $28,156 minimum payment was due for December.
Horomanski’s son contacted Penelac, her electric provider, who confirmed the error. Parent company First Energy said a decimal point was accidentally moved. Her new amount was quickly corrected to $284.46.
