Pennsylvania Woman 'Shocked' After Receiving $284 Billion Electric Bill

A woman in America was blown away when she copped a US$284 billion electricity bill - that's $376 billion Australian.

Looking on the bright side, Horomanski's electric company did offer the 58-year-old a minimum payment option of just $28,156 due in December. Naturally, she blamed her Christmas lights.

Mary Horomanski of Pennsylvania got the giant bill this month, and couldn't believe her eyes.

Penelec, Horomanski's provider, later confirmed that an error had been made after the family contacted the utility company.

STEELERS ON 11: Steelers clinch first-round bye with win against Texans
Yates: Through 25 minutes of play, he's completed as many passes to Texans receivers (one) as Steelers cornerbacks . Seeing their team not play down to their opponent had to be a welcome Christmas gift for Steelers fans.

"I can't recall ever seeing a bill for billions of dollars", Durbin said, adding that while he does not know how the error happened, it's obviously a few orders of magnitude out of line.

An Erie, Pennsylvania woman was surprised this week with an electric bill which equaled almost the entire GDP of the country of Chile, the Erie Times-News reported.

A spokesman for Penelec's parent company First Energy addressed the incorrect bill situation, suggesting that a decimal point must have been accidentally moved.

Horomanski's experience with the massive bill gave her an idea for a unique Christmas present. "We appreciate the customer's willingness to reach out to us about the mistake". As for Mary Horomanski, she reportedly told her son that after seeing the bill she'd prefer a heart monitor for Christmas.
