I posted this somewhere else.

In June this year I lived in a 2000 sq ft, 21 year-old home and the bill for the month was $370. I moved into a new construction 3000 sq ft home in July and the bill was $309 for the same number of days. For August, it was $274.

I use TXU and I float, not fixed, with avg cost of 10.5 cents/kwh.

$158 and $177 so far this year. 15 yrs old, 2200 sq ft, 1 story.

Has a 16 SEER unit, programmable thermostat, some CFL bulbs where appropriate, dimmers for some incandescents, exterior solar screens and interior cellular type shades, glass double-doors and maintained weather-stripping. Thermostat is on a curve from 74-77

I don't think I can get it any better than that, short of going to an even higher SEER unit. But for now I am stuck with it.

3,200 sq ft, 3-story home, 4 years old. Electricity bill in summer between $165 - $190. I attribute it to great architectural design! Home temp is set at 77 degrees at night, and 82 during the day, when we're not home.

I attribute it to you keeping your house absurdly hot.

I had an 800 sq. ft. apartment. Usually about 700 - 800 kwh in summer. I just got a bill for 4000 kwh for only 20 days. It is currently in dispute.
