Newsflash: How long are we responsible for keeping Electric & other utilities ON after moving out of rental home (30 days prior to lease ending)?

We have moved out early from a home lease situation in CA. Are we responsible for keeping electric etc in our name & ON until the end of our lease – even after we no longer are in possession of the property?The water bill is Huge here due to two large lawns, and the owner is showing the property to prospective renters at this time. Additionally, the LL is making upgrades/remodeling to the homes interior … while we pay for the electricity. The LL insists we are responsible for paying the electric, water, etc, even though we’ve given up possession and given him the keys. Doesn’t quite seem fair.We are paid up through the end of our lease.
