Question average utilities?

I know this varies based on sq footage and consumption but using an avg. sized 2 bedroom/1 bath condo (approx. 1,000 sq ft) - what would the average electricity bill look like?

I read an article online about GA electric bills having increased substantially.

Also, what about water, sanitation, etc?

Where I currently live we get billed every 3 months approx. $150-$200 for a 4/5 bedroom home.

This is just for comparison purposes.

It doesn't just vary by sqft but also by what appliances you have on gas vs electric, what quality your insulation is, where your apartment is located in the building (end unit, top floor, etc.), what your tolerance for heat in the summer is like, how efficient your appliances are, do you have shade, etc. There are a lot of variables. Based on what I pay for a one bedroom you would probably pay and average of $30 a month or so in for regular months and $70 during peak summer months. However, I've known people to pay as much as $400 and as low as $35 in the summer for a 1000 sf apartment.

$400???!!!!

Even $250 is steep in my opinion. Maybe that's why the cost of living is considered cheap by some of us Northerns but it appears you pay for it through your electric bill.

I used to live in an apartment of 1024 square feet. The apartment was built in 2003. My electric rate was at worst $60 a month. Since the apartment was all electric, I don't have to pay gas. It all really depends.
