Whether you've lost your current bill or you're considering purchasing a particular property and want to know utility costs before you commit, you'll need a way of finding out what the electric bills cost. If it's your current bill, you'll probably want to know the exact amount for the month. If you're thinking about buying the house on the other hand, it's more helpful to find out the 12 month high and low bills and the 12 month occupied average. Those numbers will help give you a good feel for what it will cost each month for electricity.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Find the name of the electric utility provider for the area. You can look in the Yellow Pages or check online by searching for the name of the city and "utilities." Browse the links to pick out the electric providers. Most areas have one or two major servicers. If there are multiples, call each one until you reach the company that services that particular address.

  2. 2

    Call each electric provider starting with the first listed, using the number published online or in the Yellow Pages until you find the one that services the address you're wondering about.

  3. 3

    Answer any electronic prompts until you get to a person. Let the representative know the address of the property and the information you're looking for -- the current month's bill, the 12 month high and lows or a 12 month occupied average. If the representative says her company doesn't service that address, call the next company.

Tips and warnings

  • If you currently own the property, you may be able to sign into your account online to view the current bill.
