One business owner says the high energy prices could drive him out of business.
One month last fall, his bill went up $400 without any explanation.
"They keep raising and going down, raising and going down and then to jump from $800 to $1,251," energy customer Garland Skinner said. "Now how did I burn that much power?"
The city is responsible for the billing. A Wilson spokesperson says the bills are high because it was a very cold January.
A longer than normal billing cycle also played a role, which is a problem the city is trying to correct.
A meeting was held Thursday to try to come up with solutions.
