This was included with the pamphlet with my bill this month. This is a question that is often asked by buyers. By law, the seller must provide 1 year’s worth of summary information on electric bills but this provides a quick reference guide.
Because anyone who has decided to understand their MECO bill usually gives up because it is impossible to understand all the surcharges and adjustments, I decided to validate the “average cost per KWH” against my actual bill. We live in a 1900 sq. ft house. Our biggest energy drain is in summer where we run our A/C once temperature hits 85 degrees. Last month (month ending 5/14/2012) our bill was $176.09 for 583 KWH. The calculation in this chart shows $.3577 per KWH which works out slightly higher than our bill to $208.54.
Not perfect but it is a good guideline to use and compare to other areas of the country.
Of course, we know electricity costs will continue to rise! I’m planning on putting up PV if a have a decent business year!
