A New York man reportedly received a Con Edison monthly bill of $38 million on Monday for his 600 square foot apartment.
The man identified as Tommy Straub tweeted at Con Edison to fix his “insane” energy bill for his place in Queens.
“Hey @ConEdison: I own a 600 square foot apartment in Astoria, Qns. I do NOT own the entirety of Manhattan Island. THIS IS INSANE. FIX IT,” he tweeted on Monday, with a screenshot of the $37,974,401.35 bill.
In a statement to the New York Daily News, a ConEd spokesperson said
“Our customer ops team is looking into it and we’ll definitely work on it and fix it,” adding that it was most likely a computer error.
