My wife and I are considering renting a two-bedroom apartment in one of the downtown Durham lofts. They are all-electric units (no gas for water, heat, etc.). What do most people pay for electric bills in the area? I've seen a few threads on electric bills for houses, and I would assume that apartments would be considerably cheaper. Would an average bill of $60 be out of the question? Thanks in advance.

I don't know if Durham's power rates are any lower, but based on what I pay for my 3BR apartment in Carrboro, that sounds low. Our electric bills the last few months have averaged around $94 - that's with very frugal use of the heating when it was cold and no air conditioning yet at all. Two adults and one 4-year old. You might be able to get away with $60 with no heat, no AC and no use of a dryer. I would count on closer to $80-90.

I have one in Raleigh. Our electricity usage isn't exactly frugal, but we do try to avoid using heat/ac whenever possible, and it's around $100. Hope that helps.
