Each month I get an email from the electric company that details how much
electricity we've used during the month. The statement also includes a nice graphic breakdown of our usage.
This bill will be up 45% from the last one, which is frustrating but predictable. Our cycle runs from the middle of one month to the middle of the next, and included June's record setting highs and July's normal heat.
The hot weather doesn't go away until after Labor Day, but with any luck there won't be any stratospheric temperatures and the next one will be incrementally smaller. After that the total bill should take a nice nosedive.
