We received our new electric bill yesterday. It was for $28.63 which includes a $15 hookup fee. It is an apartment where the electricity was never turned off. They charged us $15 to put the bill into our name. Since we don't have the option of choosing what electric company we use, I think that's a rip off. I understand the fee if somebody physically needs to hook something up.
I had forgotten how many extra little costs are associated with moving like these little hook up fees.
