Re: Our PG&E Bill averages $600-$800 per month, sometimes more..

Culprits for something like this are usually tankless water heaters that draw 220, a bad appliance that's somehow draining too much current (maybe that second fridge.

The most basic way to check this is to go look at your meter. See if it's just spinning real fast. If it is, then start unplugging stuff until you find the cause. If it's not, start turning things you normally use on until you find the cause.

If you turn on the hot water and the meter takes off spinning like a top, you have a tankless water heating system that's killing your bill despite what they told you in terms of it saving you money. Sometimes big homes use two of those units and that can really kill the energy bill.
