it'll depend on how the apartment was built, what floor you're on, what direction your windows face, etc, but you're probably looking at $50-$75 on average.

It's been awhile since I lived in an apartment but I ask your question around the office. I seems the electric bill will average $65 on the lowside to $120 during the heat of the summer.

I think my highest apartment bill was around $185, but that was an almost 1200 sq foot apartment. Corner unit, first floor.

I guess it pays to live on the first floor since heat rises!

anywhere from $75-$150. I live in a unit about that size, on the first floor and have Garland Power and Light.

Most older apartments have terrible energy efficiency, and you have to be proactive.
