Hey guys,

I'm about to move into my new apartment and I was wondering how much I can figure in for electric. I'm living in the Hoover/Hwy. 31 corridor (sp?) and will split the cost with two other roommates. The electric company said our bill would be about $233.00 but that didn't sound right.

Go for averaging. But if you're running your air conditioning 24/7, then you're going to have high electric bills during the summer.

What makes you say it doesn't sound right?

You can opt for a set amount monthly payment with annual adjustment.

$233 sounds high to me. I have a two bed, 1 1/2 bath and mine was around $75 last month.

Three room mates = 3 bedrooms. Additional laundry and other usage. AC will be a big part of it.

We have a small 3 br house and that sounds about right.

it mostly depends how cold your AC is, how much you run it, and how sealed and insulated your place is. if you can change one of those things you can lessen it. you could also dry your clothes outside.
