Tacoma mom’s energy bill triples; TPU sends specialists to find out why
TACOMA, Wash. -- It’s a story we first shared with you earlier this week, when a Tacoma mom discovered her power bill went from $500 to $1,500. Since Q13 News started investigating, Tacoma Public Utilities sent a conservation specialist to that woman’s home to see what they could find out. TPU said they found several inefficiencies in Tanya Bartlett’s home that led to the unusually high utility bill, especially during these cold winter months.
