CFE Bills

Posted by Rick Strittmater on June 14, 2011, 3:55 pm

Hey all. I don't expect everyone to know of my house or electrical usage, but I had a question for all that care to read this.

I went to CFE to pay my bill and I got a read out of the last few years of my usage. W/O boring anyone, let's say in the past 6 months, I average about 340 KwH per billing period of 59-60 days. At the newest rates, that is about 381 pesos per bill, again for 59-60 days.

I do my best to save where I can, but we have all the ceiling fans on a lot, standing fans, we have washing and drying a lot, a 7 year old that leaves the lights on, we watch DVD's like anyone else, Lyle has his little DVD player, typical fridge, all of that. We have a bomba pump to fill the pressure tank and it runs quite often b/c the PT is not huge. We don't have A/C. We don't have a pool. I have CFL in every socket in the house.

I have interaction with lots of folks here in LM and it seems that my bills can be as little as 1/4th of the bills I hear for other folks, which seems very, very, very odd. I have a 220V meter b/c I have some 220 outlets in the house. I never use the 220 outlets at all. I only use the 110 outlets.

Do I seem in the ball park with any of your bills? I am not complaining, I am just curious.
