Here's how people reacted:

An individual wrote, "So- the size of your house? ACs, lights, washing machine, dryer, etc. If you consume electricity units, you will have to pay that much- and you didn't specify two months, so you conveniently ignored that! Please minimize your electricity consumption, or else cough up the money! No point in putting it out on social media & sensationalizing it!"

Another X user, Radhika Dani, said, "Get solar. We got it three years ago and are damn satisfied with our almost zero bills now in this city heat of 40-45."

A third said, "If it's real and you have your own house, then switch to solar. We have done that and are really happy with the results. A one-time investment will keep you happy for many years."

Someone else posted, "Did they charge you wrongly or you used ACs too much? How many ACs do you have in your house and how long did they run for?"
