Hi,

I'm trying to understand and get an idea of utility costs in the Prescott Area. Of course it depends on usage but is there a fix amount for electricity and water per month? Something like a base amount on top of which comes the actual usage.

For example I found out recently that in the Reno/Nevada area, the water bill starts monthly at $ 125.

Is there something similar in the Prescott Area?

Thank you.

I live in Prescott Valley, house approximately 2000sqf. Winter - gas $70 water $40 elect 120
Summer - gas $50 Water 70 Elect 40

This is just an average and can go up or down (but not very much) depending on how hot or cold it gets. We have a lot of shade trees so that helps in the summer but also needs more water.

Gas and electric bills have fixed fees on top of which is charged your actual usage.

In the City of Prescott, the water bill includes fixed fees for trash, recycling and city services like street lights, water is charged at actual usage. Sewer is charged based on your previous year's water usage.

There are a number of different water utilities in Prescott Valley, depending on where you live, so those will vary. Not sure how trash and recycling is handled in PV.

Prescott has its own fire department, all other areas uses CAFMA. Not sure how CAFMA is funded.

I sold my house in Reno 3 years ago and the water bill was based on usage and the bill was usually around 40-45/month. My friends still own houses and they would be complaining if what you said was true.

In Dayton, NV they have a fixed base amount for water/month. Then you add to this what you actually use monthly. I tried to rent something there and the landlord told me this fact (yesterday, on the phone).

Hi just out of curiosity you say summer elec bill is 40$ down from 120$ in the winter? I'm curious as to how expensive air conditioning is in the summer. Isn't air conditioning electric? Thanks

I wrote: "Reno area".

Thanks for your answer Terry, you mentioning that Reno has not this 'thing' (fixed based amount) made me realize that only Dayton has it.
