We live in Illinois in a 2,200 sq ft, 128 year old house. Two adults and a toddler right now. We have gas heat and a gas water heater, but our A/C, stove, and dryer are electric. In the summer, we keep the A/C at 76 during the day and 74 at night.
Eight months of the year, when it's not summer, our electric usage is 600-750 kwh. Last year, we paid around 7.5 cents per kwh in the cooler months, but this year, it's around 8.5 cents. During the summer, we usually have three months around 1,200 kwh and one month at 2,100 kwh. Last year, the summer electric rate was around 8.0 cents per kwh, but this summer it fluctuated between 8.0 and 9.0 cents.
Our house is already pretty well insulated, but we're getting another layer of insulation and new siding next week, so we're hoping that drops the bills even more.
