We just got our bill for the quarter which was around $400. Apparently this is the average bill for a single person household - and we are a family of four including two young adults - one of whom insists on having his ceiling fan on all day and night, so not small users by any means. We also have a small solar installation, but obviously in winter the benefit from that is smaller. Best thing we ever did was put in a wood burner in the lounge this year. We thought really carefully about where to put it, and the right size to get. Get wood for it during the summer - usually free from ads on Gumtree where someone has had a tree cut down. Have used it just about every day this winter, and hardly had the heating on at all. It's brilliant - cozy, comforting, and obviously saving us loads of money too! Total all round winner.
