Did you scan that in or was it online?
oh it's a scan of a snail mail bill i get in the snail mail mail.
I live with my wife and four kids in a 3,200 s.f. home. Over the last 12-months we averaged 63.8 kwh/day
I write about my journey to get my electricity bill below 5.0 kWh/day over at: http://www.43things.com/people/progress/spudart/3352890
5 khw per day and i live in a 950 sq feet apartment. down in fla
6.78 Kwh January average in a 901 sq. ft. apartment in Front Range Colorado.
About 4.7 KwH per day in a studio apt....no A/C, just the fridge computer,and flour. bulbs.
<3 kWh/day in a large studio apartment in chicago without A/C (hot water and laundry provided by building)
Wow, Dan! Less than three kWh per day. I bet you don't turn the computer on all that much.
I'm looking at my bill right now and it says 1.5Kwh per day. It's just my gf and I in a studio apartment. I think we save money by not watching T.V., only movies on occasion.
I received my electric bill and I am supposedly using a little over 100KWH/ day. I live alone in a small one bedroom apt., I do not have cable therefore I do not watch TV, I do not cook everyday (my stove is gas anyway), I have a laptop....how is this monstrous usage possible?!!
thank u guys for posting this up here. its my 1st time hunting for an appt (750sq ft) by myself & in the houston area, we have the choice of several electric companies. im trying 2 figure out who to go w/. Most charge 5.6c/kwH but they will charge you a base of $9.95 in addition if you use "less" electricity (<1000kwH). Your postings give me an idea of how much I should expect to use! Thanks again!
I am doing the exact same thing but all the rates i find are around 10.c/kw
what companies are out there at half the cost?
Wow - just came across this and am so jealous of your elec costs in the US! In Australia we are around 18 cents per KWH.... and I am with one of the cheap companies :)
2 of us in a 1 bedroom apartment use about 7.5kwh a day, but I am home all day on my laptop and we are self-confessed couch potatoes all evening.
With supply charges our bills are generally $200 per quarter...
I'm new to the HTX area and am overwhelmed by the number of providers out there! I am on powertochoose.org right now, but am still a little lost. I'm leaning toward Startex, but the variable rate concerns me.
2-3 kwH per day - Pittsburgh 1300 sqft house. Single person household. No AC, no TV. One fish-tank with electric heater and pump. All other heat is gas (cook, wash, water, heat). Energy-star fridge, Energy-star ceiling fans. CFLs everywhere. For the rest, if it's not in use, it's not plugged in.
Some one needs to help my daughter. Her electricity bill is outrageous for a 2 bedroom apt in Lake county, Fl. The usage is 117.55 KW per DAY! Total for 31 days is 3644. She is getting robbed! Who can help me?
I live in Dallas where the past few months temps have been 100+ degrees on most days. I averaged 10.067 KWH/day, but I only use AC at night and swelter in 100+ degrees during the day and evening hours. I've surprisingly gotten use to it, and it doesn't bother that much; I just have a fan blowing on me at all times and drink water to cool down.
To Jackie, tell your daughter not to abuse the AC and buy some fans.
my electric co. national grid is telling me Im using 54k/w per day
Thanks Dat. She is very frugal and was using a fan in her bedroom as well as in the tiny living room. This apt. is extremely small. I doubt that it's larger than 600 sq ft. The apt is in an old concrete building and is upstairs, along with another apt. The ground floor occupant is a hair salon. I suspect she's paying the electricity for both apartments and the hair salon. Slum lord is ripping her off.
I'm west of Austin, TX; live in a 1216 sq. ft. mh, all electric: central AC + 2 small window ac's because the central ac is old, 1 freezer, electric clothes dryer, electric stove, electric hw heater and 70+ days straight of 102+ degrees heat...3402kWh for 32 days + 113.4kWh per day!!! Little wonder that we've got our place up for sale & plan on moving to our land out west & living off the grid! Enough of this craziness:(
i just moved to Houston and just signed a lease to a 750sq ft apartment also. i am debating between StarTex and Gexa. but i have no idea how many Kilowatt Hours im going to use???
Did you end up having any luck?
Which company did you choose?
or better yet, how many khw's do you use for a 70sq ft apartment?
i would love to hear feed back from you!...i have to sign up for something really soon.
