Yes, we just about croaked when we paid our last electric bill! Ours was $500 for a 3000 square foot home. We keep the AC at 80 degrees, too, so we aren't frivolous with that.

Check your usage compared to last year. Mine was up even though I was on vacation & I'm more careful with electric this year. The temps must be higher then same time last year. Can't figure any other reason for usage to be up.

$420.00 for a 3200 square foot home...still lower than last year - we are switching over to more energy effiecient light bulbs each time we have to replace one. I have noticed a difference already. We keep the downstairs thermostat at 75 and the upstairs at 78.

We are on the budget plan too so we paid $360 but usage was actually about $425 for 4000 sq. ft.

ARC....sounds like you might have something wrong.
