My last regular electric bill arrived today. Very cool. I have not had a bill this low since maybe 10 or 15 years ago. The bill was 61 dollars. When my average bill was $185, that is a huge savings to me. Even with the lease payment, I saved 70 dollars from my normal bill. Last year at this time my bill was $195 and now it is $61. Add the 60 dollar lease payment, which makes 120 and you see I saved 75 dollars this month over last year. That is a great deal!
Next month, I go to net metering. The bill will be about $1-10 dollars each month which I don’t have to pay till October 2011. So I can take the amount that the bill would be, which they will post at the bottom and save it in the bank for a year and then pay it, making interest till then. Too cool!
So neighbors, what do you think? $120 or $190 which is the better bill? And I know some of my neighbors pay less than me and some pay more, depending on how much they use their air conditioner.
Any comments are welcome as always. More tomorrow.
