Hubby and I are planning our last trip to TN to zero in on our 'new home' location. We are thinking Mount Juliet area, but want to explore some areas just outside MJ.
We are trying to do a mock up on our bills - what they would be in TN - so that we have a realistic number of the cost of living for us there. Hubby will have to find a new job as his job does not offer relocation to TN so with the salary difference, we just want to know what he would have to make to be able to afford to live there.
Our electric bill here on LI was:
533 KWH (whatever that is) at $.0857 and 1989 KWH at $.0975 - giving a total of 2522 KWH for 64 days usage. Our bill was $517.47 total for the 64 days. We do have A/C's in the house (window kind) and we are 2 adults, 1 teen and a baby.
I appreciate your time and reply!

Why do you want to move to TN? Maybe because it's cheaper and the weather is better in the winter, but you are leaving your friends and family in NY. Eventually, you will miss them, believe me. TN maybe good for locals and vacations but you will never feel home..

I'm sorry you had a bad experience, really, but we love it here. Sure we miss family, but TN is our home now.

7 years is an awfully long vacation......

Leaving family is not all that bad. We relocated to Tennessee; all, and I mean all, our family is from Wisconsin. Yes, we miss them, but on the other hand it feels good to just have to take care of ourselves and deal with our own problems. Going back home for vacation is wonderful; coming back to Tennessee is great too. I guess it depends on what you are looking for when relocating.

This is confusing!!!! Obviously, there is some private communication going on publicly that is leaving some of us in the dark. That's my take on it.

Heck, when I moved here I was more than happy to leave certain choice relatives behind!

Based on NES rates in Nashville, 2522KWH would be $214.45 + their "customer Charge" of $8.39, whatever that is. That's based on $.08503/KWH. If you paid $517.47 for 2522KWH, you have to be paying more than twice what you posted.
