Moreover, we have three 20-year-old HVAC units cooling our house.
I seriously doubt that bill included much of July. July isn't over yet, and unless you go online to read your bill, you haven't even seen it yet. Temperatures were mild this month but not enough to account for that much of a drop in energy use. I count seven days this month where the high was more than five degrees below normal, and there were two days where the high was more than five degrees above normal.

Mine has gone down from last year too. I'm sure the temps helped but so did the new windows and attic insulation.

Ours is down too. The cooler temps, plus setting the thermostat to 88 when we are gone is really helping.

Mine is up, but that was because no one was here. Much higher this year. Sucks, because I have a A/C bill here and in MI. GRRRRRRR....MI has had horrific temps and humidity.

Yes!!! Unplug your electronics if not in use. Luckily for us, my North facing corner unit is surrounded by mature trees. Nature helping us in a way. We've also replaced a few old appliances with energy efficient ones. Result is nearly half on electricity bills compared to last year.

BUT Sandoval appointed to the Public Utilities Commission, a friend to the Nevada Energy executives and his most recent decision was in favor of NV Energy. In other words he's not and will never be on the consumer side. Good thing both the other commissioners disagreed and voted the other way.

I live in an 1800sq ft home with an older unit. Last year our highest summer bill was about $378. In April we went on the equal pay plan and now currently pay $125 all year long.

ETA: Our lowest bill last year was $95 so $125 all year is good for us.
