Anyone ever deal with BC Hydro over billing issues?

Logged into my BC Hydro account and noticed a large one-day spike in my usage this past Sunday. But at the time, I was out of town for the long weekend and didn't return until the following afternoon.

Saturday = 3 kwh (out of town)
Sunday = 16 kwh (out of town)
Monday = 5 kwh (returned late afternoon)

How is it possible that consumption spikes over 5x in a single day while I'm not even there?

The only thing I can think of is the refrigerator running, but does that alone make sense? I am doubtful because in 60 days, I haven't exceeded more than 10 kwh in one day.

It's a 1 br condo with baseboard heaters connected to a thermostat (that's currently set to 0). No gas. I'll probably have to give Hydro a call but am wondering if anyone else has dealt with similar issues?

Have any of your previous Sunday usage have any spikes, even on a smaller scale? Sunday is often the default day for various devices to update themselves, even if they're left in standby mode. Alternatively, maybe a friend or family member with a key came by and decided to cook dinner and crank up the heat.

yeah sunday usage is on average higher, but that's also the day i'm usually at home. the highest day of the week seems to be saturday, which is around 8 kwh on average.

in either case, in the past 60 days, the highest single day usage for any day of the week was no more than 9.5 kwh.

Greebo i t-boned some guy and killed their baby, it was funny
silvia i have a couple asian guy friends that do very well with the ladies. but guess what, they go to the gym, they dont have long hair, they dont wear orange pants, and they dont play counterstrike. its not the ethnicity that the girls dont like, its the style and personality.
450HP Supra I am about to use your eye sockets as a shoe rack for my nuts. ...something about chinks, j-bodys, I can't quite remember as I was drunk and looking for a girl to punch in the clit. Think of it as a digital urinal, and you are the mint, except, instead of actually smelling mint, you smell like mothballs, rotten kimchee and virginity. I'm about to start drinking heavily now and you better be gone before I get back or I swear to god I will break the internet over my knee and use the pieces to beat you in the deformed skull with, cock muffler.
Iceman-19 If your gf cooks and cleans, good, tell the guy to take a fucking hike. If she doesnt, fuck, that joker can have her. Lifes too short to cook your own meals and do your own laundry, thats what women are for!

Ask if there's a chance someone's meter is mixed up with your account
