Nobody in the NESIC region pays their bills.


Why do you ask? What a silly post without an actual question. Probably all of us pay a gas it utility bill.

Are you wondering what an average bill would be? Or are you just wondering if its a state run service, free for everyone.

I thought only "Red" states got their utilities for free...compliments of the Federal government.

He's in Utah and so one of the sister wives is in charge of paying utilities. In Mass, we get to pay our own bills. Take your Utah bill and double it. That's what it costs here.

It's up to the landlord and it's in the lease agreement if you're renting.

At my previous apartment, my landlord covered heat, hot water, and electricity (a rarity). In my current apartment, I pay for all utilities.

It just depends on the lease agreement and your landlord. There's no "rule" per se, except that the landlord must pay for water.

Pretty sure he wants to borrow somebody's identity to open a bank account or something like that... usually they ask for a utility bill for proof of residence.

:raiseshand:

I pay somewhere around $1500 a month for electricity and $1000 a month for gas in the winter ($100 a month for gas in the summer) plus Oil.

But I pay to light and heat a 3000sqft house and 2 2750sqft businesses.

^ I'd kill for a wood stove in my house! $302 a month only covers 900 gallons / $3624 in oil.....so I'm always worried about not turning the heat up to much so I don't have to pay on top of that after the years up

I meant $100/month in the summer. Usually we use no gas and I just pay the account fees.

The $1500 in elec is split something like $300/$500/$700, with the latter two being my salons. Im hoping to get those down to a ~$300 after eliminating the tanning part of the businesses.

A freestanding stove is fairly easy to put in.

I put in a pellet stove a couple years ago, and I love the convenience, but I wish I went wood.

Actually I don't sell anything. I can usually save people $$ on their bill through their current provider.

My electric bill is usually around $75 a month, and I go through about $600 a month in oil. The house was built in 1861, so no insulation which makes my heating bill suck. And it's a fairly large house. Ah well.

It's not the same imo...I love the smell of the wood stove, although it's a ton more messy!

Yeah. I love coming home to the smell of my neighbors fireplace.

I might move the pellet stove downstairs and put a wood stove where it is now next year.

I understand it could seem skeptical, not everyday do you have someone offering to save you money on your bills. I'm a broker and work with providers across the country. Not always can I save people money, but it seems about 95% of the time there is a savings. It could be up to 30-35% less than what your currently paying. If you can save anything, it puts you in a far greater financial situation having a lower "overhead" to support a business or family.

Anyone interested can call me anytime @801-259-8346. My name is Casey Gale, im a real person, you can it me up on facebook as well. My phone is always on, and I'll return any calls missed.

I'm not going to force this on anyone, it's available for those that want to save some $$. Those content to keep paying what your paying and don't want to try and save $$ fine, It doesn't matter to me. It's just a rough economy, and I'm trying to help out where and how I can.

FYI, paying $100/month, $400/month, $78,000/month means nothing in the world of utilities. The companies don't measure what your paying, they measure what your paying for each unit of measurement. It maters what your paying a therm for gas, or kwh for electricity, and the average usage for your household or business.

I'd love to help everyone, inbox me your number, or call me, and we can go over what your paying, and I'll see what I can do for ya.

My house (1100sqft) is all electric (heat, hot water, stove) pay about 100ish a month in the winter less during the summer. My town has its own electric company so the prices are very reasonable.
