Question electric bills

I was just wondering. How much is the average electricity bill for a 1 to 2 bedroom apartment? I keep seeing posts about CT having high electric bills.

Well its not cheap here for electricity.
My example- and you perhaps can extrapolate with your usage.

2 person HH- two level 1100 square foot townhouse.
Electric dryer and hot water heater. Average to low electricity use elsewhere in the house. Basic computer, no exotic appliances etc.

Bill is $110-125 a month. with Central air on in the summer- not everyday, but 3 days in 10- bill higher

if you go to www.iloweredmyelectricbill.com/savenow (http://www.iloweredmyelectricbill.com/savenow - broken link) you can change to this supplier and save 18% with CL&P. Cuts the electric bill alot.

When I had my 2-bedroom, I was paying about $50-$60/month during winter and about $100/month in the summer (airconditioning).

These prices amaze me. We've been paying a little more than that ($80 or so during winter and $100-120 during summer, if it's REAL hot) and I'm in a 2300 sq ft house with, until the past 2 weeks, no insulation and 50 yr old windows with a nice breeze coming through them when they were closed. We do at least 3 loads of laundry / week (with electric dryer), use the electric oven/stove every night, and only just replaced our appliances about 7 months ago. What the heck are you people running?!

Wow, you guys think those are high? You don't have electric heat, right?

Our bills for a 2 level condo (no basement or attic, no washer/dryer) with electric heat have been in the $300 range in the winter. In the summer, even with 2 AC units going, it's cheaper actually.

I'd say, on average, our bill is $150 month. We do have 3 computers...
