That just seems to be a little far fetched.

Anyway to post your most recent bill?

No, but it is the truth. My bill for this month is $62 and change.

I love Reliant.

The only conscious thing I do to keep my bill down is turn off the a/c when I leave for work. Other than that everything stays plugged in and on for the most part.

As they say, seeing is believing. In the spring & fall when all I use are lights, stove/oven, ceiling fans, electronics, etc the bill is about $60.

WOW~and that's with central AC? Does anyone know how much it would cost to have central AC put in a house if you have all of the duct work in the attic? Just think of the money it would save us in the long run.

Default I wish my electric bill was that cheap!

We are with Gexa; last month was $500, the bill I received 2 days ago is for $440.00. As you can see, we run the A/C, up to 75 during the day, down to 70 at night. We may have to up the temps though, the electric bills are killing our finances.

We're with Gexa as well and our normal summer bill for an 1100 sq ft 2BD 2BT apt is around $300 (highest ever with Reliant was almost $400 in the past 6 years I've been in Houston). Last month's bill was $455, this month's is $532. Same temp changes Stephanie does, turn off the PC's at night, leave off as many lights as possible. It's really insane, especially on a single income for a 3 person household.

Default Good!

Your bill was pretty decent specially that your house is pretty huge. What is your energy company and how do you maintain the costs.
