    ~$160/mo level payment with 1750SF raised ranch that includes electric A/C, stove/oven, and clothes dryer. Hot water and furnace are gas. Gas runs about $60/mo on level payment but we're well under the minimum charge during the summer. Without that minimum charge we'd be about $45/mo on gas.

    Though I am sorry to hear about your problems Fisher I think anyone getting a new home is a fool if they don't get gas put in. The world is going through a natural gas boom, it's definitely the fossil fuel of the future, and prices are likely to stay stable and supplies plentiful for decades to come.

    Hell, if the prices on such units were low enough for the general housing market, I would get a natural gas refrigerator and air conditioning unit.

    I don't remember ever spending more than $200 a month, usually much, much less, and that's for a 2600 sqft house. We just don't live in a bad climate where we have to run the heat all winter or the A/C all summer, in fact, last summer we only turned on the A/C for 3-4 days all season.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    I don't know my square footage, but I live in a one floor two bedroom. bill is around a hundred a month. it used to be more than that, but then I got a new meter, and then a new furnace. not sure which one contributed more to the drop in price.

    Where we will likely be will cause us to have to go to propane because there is no natural gas service in the boonies. I agree about gas though.

    We are just shy of 1,000 sq. ft. and electric is <$200. We have electric baseboard heat (secondary to wood stove) as well as electric water pump and water heater. Internet/phone is our only other utility. No mortgage payment.

    4600 sq ft... average $120- 140 a month.

    when we first moved in, electricity was running us about 4-450 a month, but we have since augmented city power with our own.
    I hope to one day get us off of city power altogether...that work has been shelved for other work( water retention) for the time being , though.

    The initial measure should be cost per kwh: ours is about 11 cents.

    Re: What are your average monthly electic bills? How many square feet to you heat/co

    What should be asked is how much are you being charged per kilowatt hours.

    On the Left Coast in the Peoples Republik of California before deregulation and before Democrats started to stick there noses in to something they have no knowledge of, the more kilowatts you used the less it cost. Now today the more you use the more you are charged.

    Where I live we are SoCal Edison customers and they have five rate tiers.

    I like Clinton feel the pain for those living in Southern California who have all electric homes with no gas to keep warm during the winter. Just last year the liberals now decide when you can and can not use your fireplace or wood burning stove to keep warm during the winter. That log burning in your fireplace could cost you $500 in fines.

    The big shocker is just around the corner. The utility companies have been forced to use renewable energy and renewable energy is extremely expensive and people are going to see a huge increase on their electric bills.

    Somewhere between 50 and 70 bucks a month to power 1400 sq ft.
