Agreed with #1. Usually you have to let them know that you're moving so that they can turn on the power at your new place. On the bill, it should usually list the address of the residence it's for. To avoid this when I was paying my electricity online, I simply renamed each new place. I had electricity in my name at 5 different places in San Diego....when I tranferred to a new one, they always shut the power off at the last one. Im just very confused as to how this could happen.
It is. The bill is sent to the person holding the account. When you move, you have to let the electric company know so they cancel the bill to the old address and bill you for the new one. OP probably changed the mailing address, but not the address that's billed. I've done it for my parents since I was 9. all 3 times we've moved since. It's not difficult at all. OP's just stupid for not knowing how to do things correctly.
How did you not know that the bill was going for your old house? YDI :/
At least the people in your old house got free electricity.
