I’ve been a horrible blogger!!! We have made it an entire month past the one year mark and I have failed to make an entry. This is not for lack of wanting, but for lack of time. It seems as though my jobs as full time parent and full time teacher have monopolized my time as of late. But as the old saying goes, better late then never!
So, here are the stats:
Heating: 754 kWh
Water Heating: 4534 kWh
Domestic Electricity: 4741 kWh
For each of you reading this you can put this into the context of what you pay for electricity. Given our electricity rate of $0.1316 / kWh this gives us the following costs. Also identified here is the base rate that we pay per month. On top of the numbers shown we also have to pay an additional 14% HST.
Water Heating: $596.67Domestic Electricity: $623.92
Bast Rate: $323.04
Putting this all together with the HST we have paid a total of $1872.63 for all of our electrical needs including our heating, hot water, and domestic electrical needs.
I must say that I am very happy with these results. In the home that we owned before we rented we paid around $3500 per year for heat. We then had to add our domestic hot water on top of this!
So, there you have it. Our stats. For our 1950 sq ft home and our family of 6, I think we have done fairly well.
