Hi,

Can anyone give me the average power bill in Reno compared to Las Vegas?

Are the summers as hot there as Las Vegas?

Thanks!!

I cannot give you an average for Vegas to compare, but can tell you the Fuel and power are charged together (NV Energy) and my monthly average is about $110 for both utilities.

The summer is not as long or as hot.....

My Vegas (actually Henderson) electric bill last month for my 1 bedroom apartment was $36. I have never had it over $60 in the summer.

But, here in Vegas, the more we conserve, the higher NV Energy raises the rates...

Lucky you We live in Las Vegas right now and our electic bill has never been that low We live in a 3 bedroom house.

We are considering the move to Reno for job reasons and I was curious if the Electric bills would be lower being in Reno. I have no idea how the weather is there compared to Vegas.

I don't know about LV but maybe someone else in LV can compare their numbers to mine in Reno. For my 1560 sq. ft. house (single story) with a gas stove, gas hot water heater, a gas fireplace, and everything else electric (regular ceiling height, not cathedral ceilings), the billing history is:

June 2010 $112
July 2010 $87
Aug 2010 $118
Sept 2010 $135
Oct 2010 $105
Nov 2010 $80
Dec 2010 $165
Jan 2011 $166
Feb 2011 $151
Mar 2011 $172
Apr 2011 $134
May 2011 $109
June 2011 $106

According to NV Energy, we use less energy than similar homes in our area. But I don't know what that means (same square footage? all single story?)

The weather is much different than Vegas. We are high desert and get much colder in the winter, power/fuel bills definitely increase in the Dec-Mar time frame. However, you will find the summer temps moderate and the cool evening air a refreshing change from the heat of Southern NV.

Hope that helps and good luck with your decision!
