Re: Electric Bill

There are lots of ways, kill-a-wats, clamp on meters, smart meter reporting, etc. Do you get online access to the properties billing history before you moved in?

What do you have running/details about the house/electric bill total, kw used, etc. would be helpful info for a thread like this.

There's no smart meter. I may have access to the previous history, but I'd have to call (Mon-Fri).

It says that I used 5927 kWh over 35 days for an average of 169 kWh/day.

Distribution Charge 5927 kWh at 3.146C per kWh.

Transmission Charge at .687C per kWh.

Generation Charge at 6.878c per kWh.

I'm looking at $650 for an electric bill.

Maybe 144kWh/24h = 6kW is in the ball park for heating an old home during a "colder than normal" month?

I'm in the northeast and use Oil heat.

While my electric bill was just $100, my heating oil is running about $600 a month during this winter....

And my medium-size one-floor house is pretty well insulated, double windows, thermostat set at 65-68, etc.

So it's adding up to the same thing.
