I am currently living in Florida, but I am hoping to move up to Virginia or Maryland by next year. I'm actually looking into Culpeper Commons. I am wondering how much an average electric bill costs. I usually keep my thermostat around 72 degrees... I love the cold! Can anyone help me?

During the winter months, if you are totally electric, figure about $300 or so per month. I'm not sure if Va. Power supplies Culpeper, or if it's another provider--but Virginia regulates electricity, so it should be about the same. (Depending, of course, on the size of the home!!!) We have just gotten a BIG rate hike...so we'll see how that plays out!

Southern maryland's power companies are BGE and Pepco. Both have been in the news for raising their rates several times a year.

That's tough to answer. The first question you want to ask is, is the house heated by natural gas or electricity. With either answer, you can call the utility company for the averages for a particular property. It will vary on the age and size of the home.

Dominion Virginia Power has a budget plan. They average the household kilowatts and you can go with that. Normally to qualify, you must be a customer in good standing for at least a year. Our household runs about 140 a month and we are completely electric. I like the one bill vice two with gas.

We have a single family home and are serviced by NOVEC. We have gas heat and hot water. Electric this year ran a high of about $240, low in the winter around $30. Gas bills basically flip in the seasons with a high in the mid-low $200 in the winter and about $30 in the summer.
