Electric update update

August 14th, 2009 at 05:51 am

My electric bill just came in, and in the last month, I've used 499 kWh and cost $61.98.

During the same time in 2008, I've used 1192 kWh, and cost $125.77.

In 2007, I've used 955 kWh, and cost $100.87.

Also, notice how the cost per kWh has gone up. In 2007 and 2008, the cost was roughly $0.10 per kWh. This year, that cost went up to about $0.12 per kWh. That translates to 20% increase in my electric bill! 20%!

Despite the rate hike, I am still saving $40 to $60 in this one month alone! I have to say that the switch to room AC has been a smashing success.

According to the usage history, I have another good month to go for the summer heat, but because it has proven itself by now, I won't be making any more updates on it.

I love it when a plan comes together!

    That is so awesome! Even with the dramatic increase in cost per KWH, which could be expected to lead to a higher bill, you have still crushed that monthly output into a smaller size. It just goes to show that making changes can provide actual insurance of a more agreeable bill -- to many people think that there is nothing you can do about it, but you proved otherwise.
