It was 5300 KWH, and the bill was $530. We have a large house, and it is all electric. We have no gas bill, no water bill, no sewer bill, just electric. I said that was the last bill, but I'm not so sure. I think the last one was about half that. If we run heat or the air conditioning, the bill is usally $400 - $500. We did not have to run either last month for long.
We have a hot tub, which has run our bill up by about $100/mo. It's an annoyance to me. I like it, but it's expensive. I try turning the heat down, and that's when the rest of the family wants to use it. Leave the temperature up, and no one wants to go near it (except me). All it takes is a little planning, if you think you want to get in it, turn up a couple of hours beforehand. They never do. Arrrr....
I do need to upgrade our Heat Pump. The one we have is over ten years old, and needs to be replaced. That may save us some usage.
