Ok so I just got my electric bill today jumped up $100 from last, hence plants went into veg since last meter read. Is this normal jumps or was i just using too much a/c or leaving too much lights on? I got a ion fan, 2 4' flos. w/4 32watt bulbs and a heater. Big house but all energy efficient. Whats your guys deal with electric bills, do you see big increases? I mean im sure alot of you use different systems how do you fluctuate the bill to not kill your wallet?
Figured the damn a/c but im going to be flowing within the next month or so, ill use a 600 or 1000w HPS whats the bill gonna look like when there on 12/12 and im veggin the next batch on 18/6? I mean shits gota add up. I think im paying 7.6c per KWH
At least another fifty bucks
7.6c per kwh
where do you live?

total watts used per hr...... divided by1k x hrs run(veg.. flower),, multiple total by 30 .. ther's your light usage per mth
best way to drop your bill is to never use your dishwasher or dryer, air dry your clothes in a seperate room or clothes hanger outside, trust me youll save alot doing that. also keep ur A/C on one temperature, dont turn it on and off manually it uses more power. And last but not least, dont use your oven as often, the oven uses alot of electricity to, get a grill and cookout more, foods better on the grill anyway . Do these 3 things and your bill will drop tremendously, just try it out one month and see

Is there a chance that your bill just went up 100 bucks because it's getting warmer out and your central ac is running more?
I'd like to point something out that nobody seems to calculate in on these websites when talking about electricity. TAX ! Lol my electric tax is like 35-40 percent. I should be paying around 100 for my 1000watt and 400 watt and fans, but thanks to tax I'm closer to 140-150
