    If you're going to go that far then where you live also has a huge impact. Obviously someone on the west coast isn't going to have the same environmental conditions to battle against as someone in the upper or central Midwest.

    I can't answer this question really because I just don't know right now. In a month or two I might know how much electricity we use though since they are planning on charging us extra if we go over an established amount for our electricity based on average usage of housing our size.

    We heat and cool about 3000 square feet. Our electric bill is about $100/month on the budget plan.

    Electric runs about $70, but the primary winter heat is a wood stove to heat about 1200 sq feet. Fortunately, winters are relatively short down here. Appliances are electric except the clothes dryer, which is propane, that's an additional average of $10 a month. Don't use the heat pump for AC, instead we use ceiling fans and a window AC in the bedroom during the worst of the summer so we can sleep.

    In addition to my residence I also own several rental units that are "all utilities paid". So I get a hefty electric bill.

    My 1220 SF townhouse had the lowest bill of the year at $47. Summer will drive it over $100-$130.

    My heater, dryer and stove are gas and run about $30-$70 a month.

    ...and my taxes are about $400 this year and my insurances about $380.00. HOA adds another $1080. Then there's cat food....catnip....litter....another $100K per month....and...

    Wow, I'm surprised it's that cheap in a place that big with a pool to heat.
