I was wondering if anyone could tell me what an average electric bill on a 2000 sqft single family home is in NM? I am moving there and trying to get an idea of utlities in relation to Virginia. Please help!

I'm moving in with y'all! I'm in Texas, in a four bedroom big house, we keep the AC on 79 during the summer and off during the winter. We have two running ceiling fans, a box fan and we cook four about an hour a day. There are three people and we all work. Our average electricity building is about $150-200 during the winter and $250-300 during the summer (most of the year).

This will of course vary considerably depending on what you have running on electric, and if heating and cooling are involved, where you are planning to move to matters a lot as well. There is a large variation in climate in NM.

We bought our home in March/April of this year. It has been around 110$-130$ for the spring...

Last month it was 180$.... I just got our current bill due the end of Sept. and it is the biggest.. 203$ bucks.

I must add that I need the house to be cool. I also cannot sleep well unless its chilly in the house at night (74-75 deg.) During the day it stays at 76.

Family of 4. 2000 sq foot home. Totally Electric. We are in Eastern NM, Clovis. We have a ceiling fan in every room.

Then again if the house is designed well, (passive solar gain with windows on the south side) and one does not leave lights on, turns down the water heater temp, one can save LOTS. Other houses in our area (all electric houses) run $200 to $300/month. Our 30 yr old well designed house of 1400 sq ft has an average of $55/month.Highest bill in winter was $107. It should be less this year now that we've tightened it up.
