mine was 335.00 this month, and next month will probably be 450.00. But then I will be in a new place (new to me) which is smaller, and I am hoping for a 250.00.

Okay then, I will stop complaining. Mine was only $105.00 this month. Next month will be another story. BUT, we live in a 1700 sq ft mobil home, and so far it has been a relatively cool summer.

Ours was $200, next month will be more.  I run lots of ceiling fans along with the air conditioner, and I think (at least in my own mind!) that is helps. I keep the temp set at 80.

Dang people!  I guess everything IS bigger in Texas.  My bill last month was $62.  But it's just me and the dog and he doesn't use the power much.  He does have his own fan that he sleeps in front of.

I  made a mistake.  It is only 325.30.  The 341 is if I don't pay it by the due date.

There are several Goode Company restaurant each with a different kind of food.  My favorite is the Seafood place.  One even boast the best Pecan Pie as named by the food TV network.  All are near Kirby just soutn of Hwy 59.  Drive around.  You'll find it.  I've already had a chopped sirloing steat burger else I'd go get some Gumbo.

Mine's about $200 in winter - but we have a woodburner which heats the water, so our power will probably go up a bit in summer.  Also, $200 NZ is only about $120 US

I'm like kimmie ours is higher in the winter.  Usually at least $200 and we don't use electric heat!!!  We have a wood and oil furnace!!  Summer is a little lower but I would faint if it was under $100!!   Hubby uses a lot of tools in the shed plus the dialysis machine uses hot water and electricity.
