Did your husband just deploy ? That could explain it. Unplug chargers when not in use. Battery operated boyfriends can really drain a battery, too. Your faithfulness is noted and commended.

Mine went from $136 for Nov to $191 for Dec

Nov was fairly mild and I used 1389 kwh for 35 day service period for an average of 39.7 kwh a day.

Dec was colder and I used 2036 kwh for 33 days and a daily average of 61.7 kwh, bill for $191. House is total electric, 2000 sq ft with a heat pump and the thermostat stays set on 69 degrees and is comfortable.
The kwh I used in Dec was up about a third and so was my bill.

You do not say whether or not you have gas heat or electric so it's hard to make a comparison of any sort. If you have Westar Electric your bill will explain the information that I have included in this post. We haven't reached the 0 mark for the winter but odds are the temperatures are going to drop around mid Feb to early Mar.

Hope you find out what your problem is, checking the fuel charge and the demand charge on my bill I am pretty well satisfied with my costs.

The minecraft broke down and maintenance is not cheap. So we pass along the added cost to the customer.

Are biil went from $329 in Nov to $629 in December. I had them come out to test the meter They said it was working within specifications. Charged me $30. The crappy thing was that the family was in Florida for 10 of those days. Makes no sense.

It's Obama's fault. He told the utility company to jack up prices and give him the profits for vacations to Hawaii. Socialist utilities! You should stop paying for any of these socialist utilities now!
