    There are two adults and two children in our 4 bedroom house and we pay no more than 400 a quarter. That is usually in summer when we have had the air con running most days. We got an electrician in a few years ago and we changed all our lights to low energy bulbs ( for some reason we could not just change them ourselves as our house was wired differently and had dimmers etc) anyway we spent a bit of money to save a quite a lot.

    We only have electricity so use it for hot water and cooking too, just got a bill for the month we've been here and it was $140, we're a family of three.

    We got ours today. $500 for the last quarter. I think last year it averaged at about $350 a quarter.

    Eta: there are three of us. We do leave the TV on the classical music channel for the dogs when we are out though. I suspect that bumps up consumption.

    My last two have been about $200 for the quarter, so about $66 per month.

    I work full time and have gas heating/hot water which makes a big difference I think. Plus I don't really watch tv and the one I have is an old style one.

    Electricity and gas combined was close to $800 for the quarter. So harsh.

    We cut ours back by turning everything off at the powerpoint when it is not in use (except the fridge obviously). We even turn the Wifi off at night. It made a HUGE difference.

    Over tv is on way more than it should be and our computer is on a lot of the time too.

    Oh, we don't have a dishwasher and I only use our dryer about twice a year so that probably helps too.
