I'm seriously thinking of moving to Cleveland this year. As a 'senior' on a fixed income, I have to count pennies, and am interested in the 'average' electricity bill for an apartment.

A recent article in Cleveland Magazine was quite an eye-opener about the Energy Adjustment Charge (EAC), the tax included on both residential and commercial monthly electricity bills. In the residential setting, it seems to double the bill, i.e. actual usage @$65.00, but with EAC $130.00. According to the article, this is the case with both CEI, the private provider, and CPP, the municipal provider.

I could be wrong, but I believe there is currently a lawsuit going forward against CPP on this issue.

I'd like to know what locals experience is with the EAC, whether it really is such a big chunk of the bill, or not. If so, I would have to adjust my budget for expected rent, and whether I'd rent anyplace where I'd be responsible for the heating bill.

I appreciate all comments.
