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.

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?

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.
