    Our last was a smidge under $400 for the quarter. 2 adults and 3 kids. I run the ducted overnight at 18 degrees for the new bub and run the dryer a couple of days a week. We have solar hot water.

    Paid ours yesterday, $860 for the quarter. 6 person household.

    Edit: Paying 28c/kWh for standard electricity and 17c/kWh for the hot water tariff. We only have electricity, so no gas or solar. Though we don't use electric heating, we have a wood heater, so the 3 or so months of winter/cold, we also spend about $150 on wood per month.

    If I'm reading my bill correctly it looks like I pay 17.92c/kWh (peak rate) with an average daily cost of $1.60.

    Does anyone else get weird billing cycle? Our last bill covered 66 days. That's not quarterly, not monthly, technically not even 2 months. What's with that?? Are they trying to make u think its cheap when it's not really a full quarter time frame?

    We have solar hot water, although we have to turn the electrical switch on most days because it is hardly ever warm.
    I turn everything off at the power point when not in use and I'm pretty strict with lights.
    We don't own a dryer.
    Hardly use heating/cooling.
    I'm a sahm, so dd & I are usually home all day, so there is usually a tv on.
    All of our appliances are less than two years old.

    Got ours today, it was $370 for two of us (often someone is home all day due to DPs shifts).

    Last year it was $550 for the winter quarter so I'm happy.

    We have 2 electric heaters that we had to use as our place gets so cold, but we turned them off when we weren't in the room. Have a washing machine, dryer and dishwasher, none of which we had at the old place (apartment) so now I wonder if they just estimated the bill.
