    They say the average house hold uses 750 kWh. I don't know anyone who uses that little. I suspect that is based upon those living in an apartment.

    Monthly ? We are usually between 500-600kWh…..typical 4 person household…2 fridges, one freezer, dishwasher…..?

    I must be frugal but not Scottish. This is my monthly average, a bit more in the winter when I plug the truck in. The wife and I, Gas heat and water heater, dryer, BBQ and garage heater.
    Summary
    Most recent 30 days:
    Oct 3, 2022 - Nov 1, 2022

    Total usage: 270.9426 kWh
    Total Electricity cost: $28.73

    Just heard that rates are going to decrease a bit. It may be a thing to look at the Tier 1 and 2 rates for those who use less than 1000kw per month in winter and less than 600kw per month in summer.
    At the Tier 1 rate, I would save about another $3. a month and I wouldn't have to limit running the dishwasher after 7pm, same with doing laundry on off hours or weekends.

    I think the biggest electron suckers would be electric heat, clothes dryer and oven. I converted my counter top to induction about 10 years ago too, much faster.
