So our last electricity bill was enormous, mostly due to BIL living in our garage for a few months but also winter heating costs.
Just got the latest one - usage is lower than our last normal bill Our two adult, one toddler household currently uses less power than the average single person household in our area
DH now completely understands why I nag him about switching off power points

My last one was lower too thankfully, $700 instead of $900 for 2 adults and 2 kids. My friend complains when hers got to $200, I wish mine was that low!

Ours was $700 last time for 1 adult and 5 kids. We have had bills up to $1500 so I was so happy!

Melrose where are you and how the heck to you manage that?

Wish I was so lucky. My average 65 day bill is around $400-$500... Dropped our usage by a quarter last bill and it was $100 more! Thank you ridiculous power increase
