Wow I live in the country near Trent, TX which is in west Texas, our electricity is 0.12 an KWH, not sure of the cost of water, but I believe the rate is something like $22.00 a month plus like $24.00 a thousand gallons, pretty expensve, water is the most valuable thing out here, aquarfers are low and well hard to drill and find water so city water or water districts pipe it around to the rural community around here, and the cost is high to lay the pipe to get water to your home.

Utility bills

Hi. I'd be happy to help you on your research project for school.

I live in a 4000 sq. ft. house that is all electric -- no gas to the property at all. The heat pump is a geothermal unit, so my bills are not terribly bad, even though my two car garage and workshop are included in my electricity bill.

My bill varies significantly throughout the year because I supplement my winter heating with a wood stove that heats pretty much the entire house. I do have an electric wall heater in my garage and that really sucks down the amps in the winter. So, my bills vary from a bit over a hundred bucks to over two hundred, depending upon the weather and time of year.

My water bill is pretty steady at about 25 bucks per month. I have a daughter who still lives at home with my wife and me, so you can imagine that the 'girls' use quite a bit of water. I usually shower at the health club, so I don't use much water at home.

I hope that helps you. If you need specific amounts for specific months, please let me know and I'll look them up for you.

Sincerely,

Dr. Evans
Bloomington, Indiana

Idaho has cheaper electric than most states as they primarily run on Hydro Power. Best thing about hydro is it is very clean, and runs 24 hours a day 365 days a year. Flow rates may change but it is about the greenest form of energy. Now nature folks argue about salmon migration etc... but you got to make choices, drill for oil? Burn coal? Were not all going to volunteer to live like Amish folk.

Think you should look at KWh prices.

Amarillo, Texas $.08/KWh

3200 sq. ft. House - 4/2/2

1250 KWh - $101.90
