    Anyone just receive their latest Con Ed bill? Shocked? I thought last month’s bill (mid-June to mid-July) was bad enough – but this one?!?!? Astronomical!!

    does Con Ed offer free energy audits? Most utilities do. We found many ways to save electricity throughout the year. This year our electric bill is up a bit,but mostly because of the need for more air conditioning and a new dehumidifier, air filter and cpap machine.

    How many refrigerators do you have?

    Have you switched to compact fluorescent light bulbs?

    If the rates haven’t changed, your bill is likely closely related to the amount of electricity you use.

    CF light bulbs and a new energy star refrigerator made a tremendous difference for me, cutting a third off my electric bills.

    ronsr; The last paragraph in your previous post is a no-brainer. Obviously. The amount you are being billed is not only closely related, but directly related to usage in KWH. (Kilowatt hours.). The way I figure the cost of electrical usage is, that I divide the net amount of $$ on the bill by KWH. (Never mind all the myriad fixed and variable charges and cost add-ons and all the other gibberish on your bill.) The net cost comes out to 27c/KWH.

    The rate on our May bill was 8.8%.

    The rate on this bill is 13.6%.

    That’s an increase of about 55%.

    Audits, shmaudits.

    It’s not US, it’s THEM Ganovim.

    I’m paying about $0.155 per kwh from. The electric utility owned by our small town.

    They put lots of nice graphs and figures on the bill, so each year we try to use less electricity in a given month than in the previous year.

    Most month’s we succeed. This year we’re having trouble because we got a dehumidifier for the basement we never had before, and we have a foster childnwho has no concept of conservation

    For reference we used 520 kwh in June for a household of two adults and two teenagers. We live in a 9 room house with one room air conditioner, one refrigerator and one tv.
