I'll be moving to Murrieta from San Diego at the end of the month, and was curious what the average cost of electricity, gas, water and trash is in Murrieta.

Our house will be 3100 sq ft with 5 bedrooms.

Thanks.

We have lived in Murrieta since 2002 when we moved from Poway. Our house is 2600 sq. ft. with a very large swimming pool and spa. We bought our home new in 2002. We are retired so are home all day and keep the temp at 76 during the summer and 72 during the winter. We do have ceiling fans in all the rooms.

The gas and electric are 2 separate companies, SoCal Gas and Edison. Their rates are lower than SDGE.

Electricity - Summer highest bill ~ $325.00, lowest ~$140. The 3 swimming pool punps are about $80-90 of the monthly bill. Average bill $200

Gas - Winter Highest bill ~$175, lowest bill ~$15. We have several months where the bill is under $20.00 and that includes heating our spa and our BBQ. Average bill $70.

Water - Runs from $40-90. We have lawn and plants etc.

Garbage - $55 for 3 months. Once a week pickup, 3 large cans that they supply.

In 2017 (summer) our electric with a tiny pool runs $815 WITH 2 medical baselines! Medical baselines do not help much but some. This is a 3100 square foot house in Murrieta near Menifee and the 215. Our low bills this winter were around $300 and this is with gas heating! The gas bill is much more reasonable. Next year SCE is going up even higher ~ time to leave this rotten state!

That is hard to believe. We live in a 3000 square foot house a couple miles south of yours. We have a large swimming pool with 3 pumps. We are retired and home all day with 4 adults living in our house. Our latest electric bill is $330.00 and our gas bill is $21.00. In the fall, winter, and spring our electric bill is around $140.00 as the pool pump runs all year.

The SCE says that our electric bill is 45% higher than the average for our neighbors in comparable sized homes.

Or they keep their house at 68 in the summer.

I live in Temecula. Fam of 4. 3,000 sqft 2 story. Electric most of year is around $90. Summer gets to $180 worst. No pool. We are a bit more efficient and rarely set thermostat to under 79. We use ceiling fan and get used to it. Not bad. Water is about $60-$80 and that's with all drip irrigation. Gas is under $25 in summer months and maybe $80 worst winter month.
