I was wondering what you folks are paying for electicity. I ask because I'm looking for a new provider.
I got my electric bill this month, and it went up over $60.00. The month before it had gone up about $30.00
This is in the 'non-peak' season and I'm not even running my heat or a/c - so I was expecting it to go the other direction and it went straight up. I have a 2 room, 1100 square foot loft - and with the exception of 4 very short strands of Christmas lights, we haven't done anything different this month than we have in past months. My rate jumped to about 15.1 cents per kw/h.
I've requested that they re-read my meter because this seemed excessive, but I expect them to tell me that it was right and this was just how it was.
I understand that prices are going up everywhere and I was wondering what other people have so I can get an idea of what a good deal is. So if it's not too personal what are you paying per kw/h, roughly how many square feet is your place, and roughly how much is your total bill as of late?
For the record, my 1100 sq foot loft at roughly 15.1 cents per kw/h ran me $169.00 this month (over twice what it was last winter) - and my neighbor upstairs who has the exact same size place as me saw his bill jump from $110 to $225 from last month to this month.
Thanks in advance.
