We also have TriCounty and although I was initially nervous that they were the only game in town where we live (Wilshire Valley - Meritage Homes), we have had nothing but positive things to say about TriCounty. We haven't had any issues in the past year, and have only lost electricity once for about 30 seconds in over 12 months here.

I am including the past year's billing total for a 2700 square foot home.

Keep in mind that we keep our AC downstairs at 72 when home, 75 when we're not home, and 78 upstairs consistently. We also replaced ALL our lights with energy efficient lighting, and don't keep lights on in rooms we're not in. We DO keep outside lights on all night though.

I'm not sure why the first month (July 2007) shows to be so high...I think it was due to the fact that we just moved in, and it was a deposit which we ended up getting back anyhow a few months later.

We live in a 3400 sq ft home and unfortunately have someone home 24/7, keep lights on constantly and computers (3) 24/7. I can't seem to train my family to conserve. My wife has also taken every energy efficient light fixture the house came with and replaced them with fixtures that have 3 times the wattage. We have 7 ceiling fans that run 10-12 hours a day. Our dryer is electric and is our oven, All in all I guess I am lucky the my bill is only $325-$375 during the summer months.
