      We pay around $250 a quarter for electric (don't have gas) and $30 a quarter for water.

      Would love to know what people do with their elec, gas and water.

      Woildnlive to know how you do that. I'm very frugal with elec - last winter barely had the heating on, always turn off lights, don't leave tv on standby, have all Eco bulbs everywhere and last winter elec bill was still $880 for the quarter. We are with Power Australia ( or whatever they are called now and get an 11% discount - don't know if mabye the costs differ significantly from provider to provider?)

      For our electric here in FNQ it's 29.403 cents per kWh and 55.241 cents per day service charge and there's only one supplier.

      Wow. We're not particularly careful with usage and everything is electric as we have no gas. We have reverse cycle heating/cooling and if we're cold/hot then it's on. It's been on about 4 hours a day everyday for the past 6 weeks. The bill may creep up towards $280 in winter but have never had more than that in the 2.5 years here.

      We're with AGL. Maybe give them a call?

      If you're hot why would you put the heating on?

      Xzibit Are you relying on grey and rain water?

      Our supply charge and sewerage and Save the Murray levy is almost $200 a quarter. In the past 3 months our water usage was $200 making the total bill just under $400.

      This was our 'autumn' bill, our 'summer' bill was $50 more. We have an average size garden, 3 people and no pool/spa.
