Hi-- We are in the process of moving from Rolla to the Columbia area (Boonville, New Franklin, Fulton, etc.). Locals who have checked it out tell me that Rolla Municipal Utilities charges much higher than state averages for their service (electricity/water/trash) and my own experience tends to agree. I don't want to get into another uber-costly town without factoring this into my plans-- SO my question is "Does anyone know of a published chart of comparative utility (particularly electric) costs for central MO towns?" I have hunted and hunted and can't find anything even close... but maybe I'm just not looking right-- Thanks-- Lynn

All could find in quick search was the following:
Untitled Document (http://www.ozarkelectric.com/rates.htm - broken link)
Electric Power Monthly - Average Retail Price of Electricity to Ultimate Customers by End-Use Sector, by State
General Service Electric

Of course, one of the easiest routes would be to contact the utilities themselves directly, asking what their rates are, for the various services you need...

Seriously, good luck!

Wow, Rolla is way above average! When I left about a year ago, it was something like 9 cents per kilowatt hour for the first 1,000, compared to 6.77 cents for a state average! We had a 6 bedroom house with 7 window AC units and electric baseboard heaters. Our electric bill in February of 2007, when it was really cold and icy, was over 500 dollars! Luckily split up over 6 guys it wasn't as bad, but still really high....that old house needed some better insulation, windows, and a modern HVAC system.
