Much more information needed

"Half capacity" makes no sense. If by "electrical capacity" you mean the maximum wattage on a circuit, that is determined by amps x volts. Look on your fuses or circuit breakers, see how many amps they are. Multiply that by 120, you have the maximum wattage for that circuit. For standard 15-amp fuses, about 1700 watts is the maximum load you'd want to have on a circuit.

Beyond explaining that, no one can answer your query without a lot more information. What does your lease say about utilites ? About air conditioning ? Who pays for electricity - you or the LL ? Has Con Edison told you anything about the electricity ? Have you asked ?
