Can anyone help me, i am using more Kwh according to my meter, than what my appliances use.
It doesnt add up. is it possible that i am requiring more power then the electrical company can offer me, and its making my meter spin like crazy.
Any Info will be helpful

Your first stop should be the yellow pages "Electrical Contractors."

But, just to eliminate a couple of obvious things: if you have any undergrtound circuits, turn off the breaker to them & see if the meter slows down a lot. Check for exhaust fans that might be turned on but aren't working, this can be a big draw. Check to see if your refrigerators and any freezers actually turn off, if they run all the time, this will keep the meter spinning.

Beyond those suggestions, best to bring in a pro.
