I have heard way too many comments to think the high bills are a coincidence. I pulled out my bill from last year for the same billing period and saw that my KWH usage per day more than doubled this year--and we were out of town for five days over the billing period, with the water heater turned off,and the heat down on the lowest setting. We were not out of town last year during the same period.
However, I went to the Weather Station history and put in 12/15/2009, and the average temperature for that month was 45.9 degrees. For this past December 15, 2010, the average temperature for the month was 15.0 degrees. Guess the heat pumps had to work a lot harder.
Still, my husband and I are wondering about the pending sale of Progress Energy to Duke Energy.
Makes the sales price higher if receivables are bigger!
