My electricity & gas supplier here in the UK charges me a concessionary rate because I'm over 60. The charge is according to the number of bedrooms, so as I only have two, the rate is low. They do not take account of the fact that my house is larger than the UK average nor that I have central air con.

Last year they charged me 65/month ($107) for gas & electricity. They got wise this year and increased the charge to 146 ($240). However that's still 20% lower than the market rate. Morons.  :2thumbsup;

Somebody is messing with quotes... and my guess it is a Brit.  We don't know what that means.

Mine should be here in a few days.  I think I won't open it right away.  I know I won't be happy with the amount.   :thumbdown;

just saw this post. i guess i'm very lucky. we belong to an electric co-op and my bill runs about $50 to $75 all year long. but then i've never turned the ac on in this house. my gas bill was the problem, (separate company) last february it was $300 ugh! and i only had the heat set at 68. i turned it down and got a blanket! this time of year it runs about $15. my biggest problem is water. it's owned by the city and comes from ground water not reservoir and is at least $100 a month. luckily we have had a lot of rain this summer and i haven't had to water the lawn.

 :banghead;  :boxing;  :stressed; Got our electric bill yesterday, 335.31. That was for 34 days and I'm guessing the end of August will be our highest.  :banghead;\

Our water bill was 108.00 which I can understand, we had some landscaping done, grass planted and had our house and deck power washed. I'll let them slide this time but if next months is high I am going to  :boxing; with the water company.

Crawford you are soooo serious!

There's a distinction, understood by all in the UK, between Willie and willie. I thought "willie" rather echoed the title of this thread. Sorry to have made a joke that can't be understood by most in the US (excepting Twirl who is clearly "with it").

It's a bit like the expression "keep your pecker up", which in UK English only means "keep cheerful" although I am aware that the same words have a completely different meaning in the US.

Our last bill fo the period ending in July was $89.  Since we have no winter here, that is about our normal year-round bill.  Water about $44.

You use wind energy?  How cool.  How much did it cost to install?

In Houston, Green Mountain is charge only .12 flat rate for a year.  I'm going to see how much to get out of my reliant contract.

It didn't cost anything to install, New Mexico is a green state. So our energy company offers it as a option.  Here you can buy it in bricks its called, and once you use that amount need to buy more, or you can just pick a % rate and average it out. It cost a little more this way, but I use more wind mill energy this way.
