Sequim electric rates are a fraction of what they are in southern California. My monthly electric bill averages $125 per month. I have a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home in Sequim with 1,850 square feet all one one level, and my Sequim electric rates are quite reasonable. June, July, August, and September were all $67 per month. Here’s a 12 month graph of electricity usage. This graph shows what your own monthly useage would look like from month to month, although your monthly bills may be more or less.
This has been the coldest winter we’ve had in 3 or 4 years, so even with low Sequim electric rates, our bills were a little higher this winter. Our coldest months are shown on this graph starting in November. My winter bills ranged from $100 to $200, and everything in my home is electric. I do have a fireplace, but I haven’t used it this year.
The average residential electricity rate in Sequim is 8.09¢/kWh. This average in Sequim is 31.9% less than the national average rate of 11.88¢/kWh. Residential rates in the U.S. range from 8.37¢/kWh to 37.34¢/kWh. [Source: Electric Rates]
The cost of living in Sequim is very reasonable compared with many other areas of the country. Sequim electric rates are one reason, but we don’t have temperature extremes either. We don’t need air conditioning in the summer, because temperatures rarely get above 80, and most days in the winter are in the 50s and 40s.
The PUD (public utility) in the Sequim area has a great online billing and analysis tool for homeowners, so you can know exactly what your useage with a variety of charts. We are very fortunate that Sequim electric rates are low.
