How Your Energy Usage Drives Your Electric Bill

The average home in the United States spends between $200 – $300 dollars each and every month on their electricity bill with projections showing it will only continue to increase. Where is that money going? Less than 10% of that is going to residential power in most places across the country, so how can you save more as the cost of traditional energy continues to rise?

What’s in Your Energy Bill?

There are two basic elements that make up the bulk of your utility bills – actual energy you used and the fuel source cost (natural gas, oil, nuclear, solar, wind, etc) and the rest is put towards maintaining the grid, wires, poles, infrastructure, equipment and more. Costs on your end are more likely to go up on the fuel side since those costs are dependent on things such as market value and constantly swayed by world events among other things well out of your control.
The only way to break free from the cycle of raising fees is the take ownership of the power you generate and consume. Rooftop residential solar power allows you to gain energy independence and eliminate the reliance on traditional grid-based systems. Over the last 10 years, the price you pay for energy has increased 1.3% per year showing no signs of slowing down or stopping.

Use Energy Friendly Appliances

Leaving appliances or devices plugged in still pulls energy that costs you money, and even though it may not be much it certainly can be when it all adds up. Make sure you purchase energy-friendly appliances to help you reduce unnecessary consumption and fees.
