I will bet you live in a broke down trailer. Either way, there was a product developed long ago designed to fix your problem...it's called "insulation". You should look into it.

The prepaid meter helps alot of people who can't afford all the money at once. If we didn't have the money to pay our electric all at once, we'd probably have the prepaid meter ourselves. We bought a new double wide trailer about 4 years ago. The highest our electric bill has ever been was $333.00. We used the emergency heat setting on our thermostat that month because it puts out warmer heat. Needless to say, we don't use it anymore. In the summer, our air conditioner is set on 75. Our bill will run $90-$125 depending on how hot it gets. In the winter, it's usually $125-$220 depending on how cold it gets. We are home 99% of the time and I work at home. I can't complain too much considering how big and open our home is and we do have the energy efficent appliances which i'm sure help a little. We have a fireplace but we've never used it. I've always kept an eye on the watts on the meter and on the bill. They read the meters here on the 28th of every month so I try to get an idea of what it is going to be each month. We are on a budget and my husband has limited income so that's one reason I keep an eye on it. Try to pay on time if you can so they don't add late fees then disconnect you. Also, insulate your house, check your windows and doors for drafts. Every little thing helps. If you use space heaters, thats really going to run your bill up. Turn lights off if you don't need them on. Unplug anything your not using because even if it isn't on, it still uses electric if its plugged in.(A relative found that out with the prepaid meter.) I've always paid my bill online so I can go back and see every bill and payment that's been made, including the deposit. Well sorry i've ranted so much but i'm just offering my opinion and personal experience with Jackson Energy. Paying more attention to your bill will help also. Good luck!

If you want lower electric bills only way it will happen is when people wise up to fact politicans in charge through the epa sets standard that power companies go by you vote in some common sense officals . With common sense leaders that know no such thing as global warming, cut of these tree huggers money from feds and pass common sense regulations we get lower bills. Ku went to all natural gas because of the regulations epa and Obama put forth and we got a higher electric bill. Now you all can blame anything you want but look on your electric bills all the taxes and regulations you pay. Just like with gas government getting rich of all the taxes and regulations on fuel and they want you to blame oil companies. You know its sad when one thinks of it that some states through ignorance of their officals have banned burning of fireplaces that use wood or coal, is that not showing the stupidity of people.
