A very pleasant surprise!

October 6th, 2007 at 02:46 pm

I checked my electricity account online and got a great surprise. The amount I owe is $72.06 and not close to $150 like I suspected I'd owe. Since this is the first full month and the first electric bill which was for 9 days was almost $40 I just knew it would be between $120 and $150. I'd figured my average daily kWh as 22 but the bill shows it to be 20. What a pleasant surprise to get a utility bill that's actually about half of what I thought it would be! I've tried not to use the AC much but I'm really not sure how it worked out this way. But hey, I'm not complaining.

And I managed to keep the kWh at 20 or less which has been a goal.

Yaaay, go me!

    That's awesome! If you have Entergy, you might have gotten one of the latter rebates. I got two of them--both about 70 plus. That sure helped us out during the hotter months!

    Thanks, thanks!

    Jan, I don't have Entergy and there's no rebates or credits on the bill. I guess my efforts to keep the bill manageable worked. I'm so hyped because I can afford a $72 bill and I actually managed to keep the bill at a reasonable amount. Smile
