We have electric heat *plus* the usual electric household stuff and the machine shop.
Sometimes, the bill is higher than that.
[they raised our electric prices to ‘save the earth’]
I have a very effective suggestion for you. Unplug everything that is not in use! You’d be amazed at the savings. I did that, excluding the fridge, stove and main TV dvr area and the result was a 66% reduction in the KwH usage! It was such a large reduction that I could not believe it and had to run the numbers several times.
Later I did do some research and found that nearly everything is an electricity vampire when plugged in. The exceptions are lamps, but everything else uses electricity when plugged in but turned off.
Now that I have been living the lifestyle, it is not really very difficult at all. When I use the microwave, I plug it in and use it then unplug it. Same for coffee maker, washer dryer, etc.
Give it a try, you’ll be shocked! (pun intended!)
