P.S. Our friend who works at Publix said they pay $18,000/month to FPL!
That makes me feel better.

The ac set at 78 degrees is very comfortable with proper window treatments here in Florida.

3200 sq ft 4/3/2, pool. 3M bronze tinted windows keep it cool as well as provide hurricane security. Rarely use the clothes dryer (dw prefers to hang out), wash in cold water. Run dishwasher no more than once a week. Keep the AC at about 82 degrees with paddle fans running if we are in the room; it's cool enough with circulating air, and certainly cooler than outside.

On the other hand, two refrigerators, freezer, wine cooler, at least one TV all day, lots of electronic equipment. Pool runs 7 hours per day in summer, 4 hours per day in winter. Solar heat panels.

This month's bill, $134. High bill in summer, $220. Average about $160.

Oh my, I'm definitely moving to Florida. We have downsized and have a smaller home that's about 1000 square feet. During the summer we easily pay 150 or more per month and it's just the two of us and we're gone five evenings a week. Our more recent bill was 213 and that's about half of what most of our neighbors are paying because their homes are larger. 500 a month isn't out of the ordinary for someone's bill during the winter. We've got a very bad cold spell and our next bill will probably be closer to 300 and winter lasts a long time up here.
