Is it really as bad as everyone says? Were about to move into a house that has new bern electricity and im nervous! They told me the hight was 350 and lowest 180. Im really not too sure what would be considered high, but i do know i would hate to have a 350 dollar bill! 

Little Miss Knowitall --- 7 years ago -

Yes! I told you to stay away from anywhere with New Bern electric!

If you're electric bill with progress or carteret craven electric is $100 it would be $150 with new bern electric.

Let's put it to you this way - I have a 2200 sq ft home, with a 20 yr old heat pump and a pool filter that runs 6-8 hrs a day.

In the summer, my HIGHEST bill was $200.

:( I havent signed a lease yet, we just really like the house. The other houses we saw really didnt fit our needs or we too much on rent. Do you think it would be ok if we just unplug everything and use fans instead of AC? haha 

Little Miss Knowitall --- 7 years ago -

Might as well unscrew all the light bulbs and use candles or flashlights for your lighting.

Do you know .$$ per kilowatt, and the electric company told you the highest in that house was $180-$350 or someone else? If it wasn't the electric company I would call them and ask the average for the addy you're looking at.

and I'd consider $200 good for having a pool. :) 

Little Miss Knowitall --- 7 years ago -

Where is the home located?

Do you have school age children?

Yes, it is very good. If I had New Bern Electric, my bill would be $300!

deb, why even do that just flip the circuit breaker for everything except the fridge and oven :)

You can call the electric company and ask for the averages over the last year or so. And ask leasing company how many residents occupied home before you. Gets an idea of how much more or less you may use.

But I guess our advice isnt good enough on here? Or maybe you don't trust us. 

9827Bethany --- 7 years ago -

I do not have school age kids yet. I called the electric company and they told me it was between 180-350. higher in the summer, lower in the winter.
And I think I will start using candles and flash lights! ;) haha.

And boom, I want as much advice as I can, is that ok? Or am I only allowed to ask a question on one web forum? Just like to know the rules before I break them again. 

Little Miss Knowitall --- 7 years ago -

Seriously, Bethany,

Those of us who make our home here on a permanent basis have very reliable information when it comes to homes/preferred locations/electric companies/schools/tradesmen (plumber, electrician, etc.)/schools, so on and so forth.

I told you at least a week ago to stay away from any home that had New Bern Electric.

Did you listen? No, you came back here today to ask if it is really as bad as everyone says.

Guess what? You got the same answer today. 

9827Bethany --- 7 years ago -

Im sorry if i offended you deb. My irritation was at Boom. I dont feel I should have to only ask one forum a question, especially if I dont know if anyone would respond. Plus a lot people have different opinions.

Another thing, you never told me anything about New Bern Electric, all i remember from you is trying to look through strictly rentals and about the neighborhood in carolina pines. So In my mind I didnt get the same answer today, its a brand new answer... since ive never been told other wise.

I asked about the electricity and if its as bad as everyone says because i have heard bad things and high electricity, but then ive heard about low bills around 200 dollars a month.
So again, I am sorry if i have upset you in anyway, it was not my intentions.

(edit to add: 200 in the summer months btw) 

Champ --- 7 years ago -

Well if the electric company said those numbers than it's pretty accurate, and unless the rent is super cheap, there is no way I'd want to pay close to that amount in electric costs personally. I think $180 is super high for winter months! which means you really are looking at a very steep bill during the summer, and summer starts in NC in what? April and doesn't cool down til October so you know you'd at least have a $265 average.

Oops! Sorry Bethany.

My post was in another thread about Moving to Havelock.

I apologize for my error.
