Average electricity bill estimates for farms assume consumption in each of the farm, grain drying, and irrigation rate classes.

Enter your usage on your bills

Usage is the amount of energy you consume. It varies from property to property and can depend on your house size, number of occupants, type of heating, use of things like hot tubs and air conditioners, types of appliances and more. To get the most accurate rate comparison, enter your own usage from a recent bill. Look for it on the second or third page of your bill. Electricity is shown as kWh (kilowatt-hours) and natural gas is shown as GJ (gigajoules). See an example.

Your usage can be found on your bill. See example.
