Definitely make sure you talk to the right person at the electric company, someone who actually knows about power. Friend of mine a couple years ago had his "smart meter" shoot craps, registering his daily power use at about 100 times what it actually was, more than enough for the pole transformer to burst into flames if the drop hadn't already melted. So he called the power company about getting that looked at, and they said no it was probably just increased because he installed a window unit AC and people always underestimate how much power those use.
