One thing I've been curious about is how much utilities will cost for the house. With 12 months of data and 3 people in the house, the average cost of utilities breaks down to this:
- Gas (heating, hot water, and stove) - $78/month
- Electricity (lights, computers, servers, etc) - $58/month
- Water, Sewer, and Trash (Seattle public utilities clumps these together) - $95/month
I was expecting worse, so I'm okay with the cost. I think that with a solar system upgrade, I can knock down the cost of electricity. I'm also considering adding some sort of rain catchment for watering plants outside to keep the water bill lower.
