I actually called them last January 2008 and they pulled up the billing records (I purchased this house in June 2007) and the previous owner was paying $200 on average for the winter months.
Well I'm going out today to buy those energy efficient lightbulbs - I have all recessed lights in the basement where my office is. I also hear that you can right them off on your taxes . I expected ours to be a bit higher than the other place but not double! Our winter electric bills were around $95.00/month at the former McMansion. $186 seems a bit high for a 2 person household... especially with B&C who hates to have lights on in the house at night ... makes no sense! Robbin' bastids!

My bill was up over 100.00 last month........

They must have raised rates because even with Christmas lights going, I can't see how we used so much electric.
