Got this month’s pg&e bill today. As you may (or may not) remember, my bill was 498.00 last month. Since I rec’d that bill, I’ve turned up the a/c five degrees, installed a clothes line (only using the dryer five times in the last month!) sat in the dark the majority of the month, changed all the lightbulbs to a lower wattage, turned the pool filter/cleaner thing down from six hours to 3 hours, and had the a/c unit serviced to hopefully help it run more efficiently. We also bought a new energy efficient fridge, but it comes next Saturday.
Got my bill today.
406.00. It went down, yes, but seriously?!!?! Over 400.00 still?!
I’m starting to wonder if this house (a rental) is just not energy efficient enough for us to say here. I know summer doesnt last forever, but at this rate, summer is going to cost us close to $2000.00! There’s only so much that cooking from scratch and thrift storing can make up for!
