- July 29, 2008 at 5:26 am #260771I’m in the DFW area and we are paying 13.6 cents per KWH. Our last bill was 222.59 and I havethe a/cset at 84 during the day and 77 at night. Normally I don’t run my heater (ours is electric) that much during the winter either.
I figure we really only have 3 to 4 really high bills a year. I’m not looking forward to next months bill with the string of triple digits we are having!!kanette

We do heat our house with natural gas but we are in Houston Tx. We may run the heater for about 2 or 3 weeks total during the winter…it never gets too cold here.I’m just curious as to what everyone else is paying for their electric. I noted in a different email that our rates are .11 but will go up to .14 at the very least. A few months ago we were looking at rates of .23, that would double our electric bill.
so our $202 bill would be $404…Dh tells me in other parts of the country people are paying as little as .05 c per KWH! I’d love to have those rates!

I guess then you do not heat the house with electric. So far I can’t get my electric down below $80. We have a 1500 Sq ft ranch home and try never to use the ac but have a fridge and in the garage a fridge and freezer.
they must take up electric. the freezer is old too. we need a newer one that would be better on electric.
we have one tv on most of the day and 1 computer on but I turn it off at night. I am also cooking in my electric roaster or my toaster oven and electric skillet to use less electric then the stove top or oven take.
