    Neil and I just moved into our first house. I'm a little nervous about ours too since it's about twice as big as our little apartment. And we like things COLD! I'm completely rabid about turning off lights now. LOL! I certainly hope it's not $300!!! Yikes!!!

    We are on a budget plan, where it is averaged out over the year, and we pay the same each month, $96 for a 5 bedroom, 2 story pretty large house. (not electric heat, and we cook with gas, and have a gas dryer)

    I think my last hydro bill was $15

    Ours hovers around $200 including electricity for lights and AC. We keep it around 73 to 75 in the house.

    But it has gone up. I save our bills for a year so I can compare. Yes, the oil prices are affecting us too. The power company has to make some big improvements soon too.

    Well, I figure people lived for 1,000's of years without AC.

    My electrical bill comes every 2 months and is usually somewhere between $160 and $180 for a two month period.

    i am screwed!

    As you all know I live in Houston Texas, and my provider is Reliant energy. Guess what they just built a couple of years ago?

    Home of last years Super Bowl. I just wonder if this has anything to do with the rates.

    *sigh* Wishin I could trade homes with Mulan

    Remember Enron? They were in your neck of the woods not too long ago.

    Two years ago they told California to drop trou, bend over forwards, and take it without any lube. So we've already been there and done that.

    And just to be fair. Your tax money probably paid for that stadium. Reliant paid money, that you paid it, to have their name placed on that stadium.

    LABD, of the still stinging bum, class

    Stefanie call them and ask about the budget plan. I've lived in 3 different power areas and they have all had them.

    I expect July's bill to be higher.

    Still cheaper than heating bill in the Northeast part of the US! That's my consolation.
