I received my electricity bill from Duke Power in my Email today.
Ow, ow, ow, ow!
This is the first time in the 8 years that I've had my house that my bill went over $100. And it cleared that hurdle quite readily with a "score" of $143.31.
That's 45% more than any other bill I've gotten from Duke Power and more than 50% higher than the bill I had last December. Ouch!
Admittedly this is by far the coldest winter that I've experienced since I moved down south 25 years ago so it's not surprising that the electric bill went up. But 50%? Yikes. And January is starting off to be colder than December so this month's bill will probably be up around $150 also.
At least this is normal weather for January; it's supposed to be cold now. December was freakishly cold for this part of the country. And don't get me started about snow!
