Insulation and energy efficiency can also vary so much from house to house. When we lived down by the beach in an uninsulated concrete block townhouse that was maybe 1,000 sf, we could hit about $250 a month during winter and summer. We now live in a 1700 sf single family house we've tried to make more energy tight as we've replaced things, and our winter/summer bills will be in the $170-$180 range. Different power companies (Gulf Power then Choctawhatchee Electric Co-op) but their rates per kwh tend to be extremely close, I'm told.

That's is what I'd like to know- guess I didn't make myself clear- What power companies are the best- what power companies to stay away from? In the areas I'm thinking of- which area has the best rates? I know there are variables of house insulation, personal taste in temp, etc. Here in upstate NY, except for a few scattered tiny power companies, we have only 1 choice that does the whole state (except NYC which is high), so it doesn't matter if I live on Long Island or Albany and beyond.

you may not have a choice here. FL is still a regulated state when it comes to electricity.
