    How much is your electricity bill per quarter? around $200. We have gas as well. It's about $200/quarter as well. To have gas and electricity we pay $100 more per quarter then just with electricity. Gas is such a friggin rip off!

    House size? Small 2 bedroom.
    How many people living in it? 4
    Aircon? no aircon (unforunetly!)
    Are you home during day? Yes although not alot gets used during the day.. usually only the computer.
    Tv usage ? It's pretty low. The TV is rarely on during the day... probably only a few hours at night.
    What state? QLD

    $544 was our last bill ,normally around $380 but we have had a large increase by synergy for the cost of power since that bill.
    4x2 house 3 living areas with 2 adults 3 kids
    Evap air con on most of summer.
    Home all day with 2 big tvs sometimes 3 going and 8 fridges and freezers (1 freezer was emptied yesterday and 2 of the small fridges turned off to save power) dozens of charging appliances and 4 computers and I only use the dryer altho I have hung out one load since the bill lol thats sort of trying. I am also not sure if the kids have been turning on the sauna ,it was plugged in and they were playing with ther radio in it so they could have switched it on and that uses heaps of power, I have unplugged that now too so will see with the next bill that is with the 26% increase we will have in power cost here as of july the 3rd one in 2 yrs I think that is now.
    Water and cooktop are gas but that bill is high too , and the water system is near new. Solar seems the way to go here seeing we don't have alternative power companys for residencial areas here.
    I am in WA.

    Ours is quite high too. Last bill was $640. Largish four bedroom house and one-bedroom granny flat which is only used when we have visitors. We have an old plasma tv which is on quite a bit. I also use the dryer all the time. (I'm very lazy.) We have split system aircons in three bedrooms. They were installed late last year, so supposedly very efficient. Two get used every night. (DH insists on setting them at 22 degrees.) One fridge, one freezer. Two heavily-heavily used computers.

    $500
    It's an estimate as our gosh dang meter broke.... Our largest bill in the history of bills before that was $250 it's usually around $200 that's with the $20 ambulance cover.
    Hopefully when I get home and complain they will change it....
