And who is your provider?

I am starting to miss Georgia Power...I just got a $340 electric bill for a 700-something-square-foot one bedroom apartment, and I have no words to describe how that feels.

152 plus dollars....I thought that was a bit extreme....my apt is about 1050 sq ft. but still ...If I compare my electric bills over the years, it seems they jump every January thru March regardless of the temp or if I am home, my bills for those months seem extra high. I'm with GA Power...but after seeing your bill for 340.00 from another provider, I don't think I'll complain as much....

Ours was $115 in January. Greystone Power Corp. We have a 2300 sq ft house, roughly. We actually paid $198, but that's because we use a lot more power in the summertime and we're on a (relatively) flat payment plan.

Nowhere near that close for a larger place than yours. However, my gas bill was sickening.

Gas and electric combined were around $250 for a 2,400 sf house. Sounds like you've got electric heat and bad insulation......

Gas bill leaped from 165 to 240. Those cold days cost us more fuel, evidently.

My electric and gas combined was around $200, which is about the same as usual (sometimes electric high/gas low - sometimes electric low/gas high). I use Ga Power for electric and GNG for gas.
