Episcopal High School located in Virginia is an over 177-year-old private boarding school. The school’s electrical system includes 65 electrical delivery points and 30 power company-owned transformers. Due to this, they had some bills with over 70-line items. Complex billing like this leaves more room for error and overcharges can be difficult to detect.
