Can someone fill me in on the cost of utilities in Lakeland area? We're moving from Michigan, which I'm sure it quite a bit different than Florida in regards to utilties We rely on gas for our heating but it looks like you rely on electric for both your heating and cooling (?) We're probably going to start with a 2 bedroom apartment until we can get the feel for the area. What does a typical month cost in Lakeland?

Thanks!!!!

Depends on how big the house is and how much power you use. It's hotter in Lakeland with many days in the summer with 95+ temps. so the more AC you use the more it will cost ya.

Lakeland Electric is a joke. Very reliable service, but Jesus Lord they nail you to the cross with their high rates.

Be prepared to have your a/c pumping at least 9 months of the year and it running at least 10 hours a day. No joke.
