    Awful - up to $1300 in the winter quarter. I just installed a 3.5kw solar system and I hope it's going to help. Just me and my daughter in the house.

    Just got our Bill. It's $370. 2 adults, 2 kids. Only electricity, we don't have gas.

    We don't have a heater or dishwasher.

    I used the dryer a couple of times and we have an electric blanket on our bed. The TV is on a fair bit.

    Approx $350. That's 2 adults and a 2.8 yr old. We could do better. I'm guessing cause t.v is on all day. Mainly for background noise.

    $1300-$1500 per quarter, should go down now that I'm back at work. Living in the tropics we have air cons running most nights, and shift working dh means nights plus during some days.

    I have $150 from dhs pay paid directly to our power bill.

    Wow i can't believe how high some of these bills are

    Ours is approx $500 to 550 a quarter. That is with 2 adults and 5 kids. We use the washing machine and dryer at least once a day and 3 times on Saturday.

    We have solar and in summer we are always in credit. Our bill this quarter was 150 after solar. $109 if we pay early. Dh is super thingy about only running the dishwasher/dryer/washing machine during off peak times.

    Can I ask how big your solar unit is?

    We are moving in a week and our new house has solar hw and a 3.5?kw (I think) solar panel system. I have no idea what to expect for bills. There is no gas and we have a pool and spa so would guess we will use lots of power.
