My electrical bills are way higher than those of my energy hog neighbors .I lodged a complaint and my Electric company's latest request is that I figure out if a neighbor's baseboards/water heater are connected to my panel.When I switch off at the breaker the meter stops but they claim that if the wiring is badly done I may also be shutting off power to my neighbor and just not be told about it.Please help.

Turn everything off in the house unplug everything then note the reading on the meter. Leave the breakers on. Then go shopping or something for several hours. When you come back if the meter has advanced then they are connected to yours.
