Our bill ranges between $380 for winter and up to $500 in summer , we have gas hotplates and heater and a ducted evap air con in a large house. I have the air con on most of the time during summer and I use a dryer all year round (almost daily) and we run 3 bar fridges and a large pigeon pair F/F and a side by side F/F and a chest freezer.
I know friends who have the refidgerated air con have bills around $400 higher than ours.
My neighbours who have solar panels pay nothing and they have pools and ducted refridgerated air cons.

Ours is around $700 - $900 a quarter. Last winter we started paying $50 a week off our account so that when we get a bill it is greatly reduced. We just find it easier to find $50 a week rather than $800 all at once.
Hopefully over summer when out bill is usually lower, we will manage to be a ahead from our weekly payments so by the time winter comes along and we have the heat pump on all the time the expense won't hit us so hard.

In our old house I was paying $1200 every 3 months. This house has a heatpump (other one didn't) which we have going none stop and our most expensive bill was $500 through winter!!! I pay $70 a week so I never owe anything come bill time.

Ours over summer was $400 (usually $200 for summer) and that was with a crappy summer, only used air-con once in the billing period, but we are doing renovations and a lot of machinery being used, so I'm hoping that explains the higher than usual bill!

We pay about $500 every 2 months with no gas. I now bpay our company weekly so I don't have to scramble when the bill comes in.
I've heard bills are about to get worse too? Argh
