dude, www.powertochoose.com !!

Our last bill was $450, but thats bc I screwed up w/the electric company. Our contract ran out before I switched to a new company (which I found through that site), instead of 1 more month at the same rate or switching to the new company we moved up to the 'market' rate, which raped us!

Oh, and Ed.....you guys have regulated electricity right?

I guess I shouldn't feel too bad about our $50 bill, then. Especially since that's paying extra to have it all come from a wind farm. Granted we live in a new 1100 sq. ft. condo, but still I can't imagine paying that much for electricity, especially as a poor grad student!

City of Austin (Austin Energy). I'm guessing it is regulated.

I heat with electricity also. My bill in April was $180. I'm not complaining considering how many appliances & computers I have running.

it will be interesting how much it goes up when the brewhaus goes on line.

That's insane Ryan. I know you're moving but I would('ve) called the electric company and have them do their free analysis. It's been 100+ for the last month here; 2 AC's, 4 fridges and pool I was under 200. Maybe they got a jacked meter and owe you a couple grand.

I agree with Ralph Nader's Mom! I mean, cheese und krackers, last months bill should have been $400.

Actually Ed, the State of Texas voted a couple years ago to de-regulate the electricity companies, probably around the same time you saw you bills skyrocket. I have a relatively small apartment here in Fort Worth and am paying about $150 a month to TXU (bastids).

They may have misread your meter. Or that might be a deposit included? That may not all be for a bill.

I'm probably paying the same as you Ryan, but I'm on the second floor with an apartment above, below, and on two sides of me with no south facing walls.
