I have a 3800 square foot house in Cumming with Sawnee electric and had Georgia Power in Savannah. My electric bill kept creeping up with Ga. Power to finally it was around $300 per month during the summer, alot of this was due to an adult family member who kept the upstairs around 74 vs. 78 I kept it out while she was at school.

Here my September bill with Sawnee, the weather was in the 90's was $95 for the month.

Peak is around $500, and that’s with 3 AC units and a heat pump. It sounds high but again I’m a heavy user. Upstairs kept at 71.

Small house built in 1952, 1200 square feet. HVAC unit so whole-house heat & air conditioning. All electric, no gas. Catoosa County, Georgia (just south of Chattanooga TN)
Other factors affecting our bill:
+ Insulation in attic added 3 years ago
+ New (really nice) windows
- You can see light around the doors (half an inch opening under the front door, no kidding).
- Hot water heater is in the garage, not insulated

We keep the heat about 68-69 degrees in the winter; cool to 72 degrees in the summer.
Our bill runs $100 - $150 depending on the month. Was double to triple this in northern California (our house was larger and on a hill - now we're in the suburbs).

Wow, very low compared to what I’m used to. Our house now is a little larger but we only really use the top half lol. However, our pellet stove is downstairs so a lot gets wasted I’m sure bc it has to rise and it heats a floor we don’t even use. Our house now is all electric too. While I do like it (less things to go wrong) we don’t like electric heat & that’s why we use a pellet stove

Hi:
our house is small and I pay $23 a month for water and $60 a month for electric. We have a fireplace that is on propane. The beginning of the cool season we fill the propane tank and it is around $200. Our house is 2 bed 2 bath one level. We don't have a basement so it is all one level. We have an electric stove. Our house is very well insulated and we have storm windows and a storm door. The house is around 1100 sq ft. We had a big over 3000 sq ft house before and the bills were huge but when the kids got married and moved out we downsized so glad we did as the utilities are much more manageable
