On average how much can I expect to pay for electricity cost in a 1300 ft^2 apartment that I am sharing with 4 people.

It is really hard to even guess what your bill will be. It depends how many electronics everybody has and how much they are left on. I had my electric bill range from about $40 to over $200/month in an apartment about the same size with 2 people. The only bills over $80 were in the summer months from running air conditioners. A/C was the only thing that really made a huge difference in the bill. The ones around $200+ were from a stupid fat roommate that liked to leave his a/c on the highest settings 24/7, even if nobody was home.

it really depends on a lot of factors. Does the apartment get a lot of light? Also, will it have A/C?

Best suggestion I can make is to call xcel and ask for an average of useage history. Also, those light bulbs that last 7 years really do make a pretty impressive difference in your bill. Invest in those

Uh, yeah, I guess that $80 a month was without air conditioners, we just hung out on the porch when it was too hot to be inside.
