From the Daily News:
Electricity bills were distributed to tenants in about 1,300 Parker Towers apartments late last month after they lost a legal battle to stop management from submetering the complex.
Tenants said the Jack Parker Corp. was installing individual meters inside their Queens Blvd. apartments without explaining who was responsible for their upkeep. Electricity had always been included in the monthly rent.
[Sharon Eisenberg's] bill was close to $200 for three months of electricity, and she fears the bill will only get higher when she turns on her air conditioners.
But management hasn't offered her any discounts on her rent.
They did, however, send out notices last week stating that, depending on their leases, not all market-rate tenants will be required to pay the power bills.
This has only added to the confusion at the complex.
The company did not return repeated calls seeking comment.
