One of the best ways to prove this is to have the electric company send you a copy of your usage for this time, if it is available. You should take your usage from when the electricity was one vs. when it was off to show that it's been off. Don't forget that your oral testimony will also be just as useful to prove and any documents you provide will only supplement it. Also, the landlord will be under oath so he cannot lie and say that he did not take these actions. Now that I think about it, you may be able to get your usage report from the electric company's website. Many times they show your daily usage and you can maybe you can get the documentation without even having to contact them.

Hello, I can understand your concern, but please keep in mind that the court will make the final determination as to what is adequate. I can give you my most professional and honest, experienced opinion, but that will get you to a certain point. In the end, I think you'll win.
If the landlord claims electricity is low becomes the apartment was vacant, the landlord, as the party alleging that, would have the burden of proving that issue;
also if one is employed, or has local receipts from the market for example, those can be introduced to show physical presence in the area.
