OK, got the last bill in the mail. EVERYTHING in the house is electric. I live with 'da women, and two girls, 12 and 16. We used 511 Kilowatt hours last month. The bill was 52 bucks. This is the lowest bill we have got in the almost two years I have been living here. As a side note, I installed a dishwasher for the women for her birthday 3 months ago. She said it would raise the bill, I said it will lower it. I win. Deregulation of the electricity market is going to hit Virginia this year, so tightening up electric use is a priority. Electric, for the convenience it provides, is an incredible bargain.
