I'm moving to London soon, will be renting a studio appartment in the city of Westminister.

Can anyone tell me how much their electricty bill is per month?
And the number of people are living there, and estimated usage etc.

I doubt Electricity varies by much in Westminster from any other area. But as everything else costs more I oughta ask.

Thanks in advance.

it's more our lifestyle than the quantity of us.

We are taking steps to improve it though. Energy efficient light bulbs that dont really do anything. Started installing switch banks to turn multiple appliances off completely rather than standby (TV/DVD/VCR/Sky Box for example, have a switch for them all in an easily accessible location)

I dont download overnight anymore :p

Electricity: £55pm (£660pa).
1 bed maisonette.

Energy saving lightbulbs throughout.
I hardly use the gas central heating.

You do know that the price in London is no different from that in any other part of the country?

The bill for our house is about £1000 a year

Although I doubt I'll be able to match BrightonBelle's £22/month.
Especially as I drink tea a lot :(

Wow, you guys must skimp like crazy! If I'd even mentioned turning the heating off over Winter I'd have been lynched.

Just out of curiosity, whereabouts in Westminster is your flat going to be?

I'm currently renting a studio apartment in westminster, and my electricity bill this year is £166.77. I have a feeling when they read the meter though it's going to go up - i have a fair amount electrical goods plugged in that the previous tenant didn't have.

If you want to know any of the other bill costs, let me know, and i'll try and dig them up.

Just north of Oxford St. (the West side)

It's listed as being in Mayfair, but i think that side of oxford street is Marylebone.

What are the water bills like? Are you paying the yearly rate, or metered?

Ooooooh.
Marylebone - very nice.
Kensington has great history, but from what I've seen, Marylebone/Baker St is tops.

Sorry for the 4 day bump. But I'm also interested in this for a 1 bed flat/studio.

Not just electric, but gas and water too.

Ok well these are my guesses p/m

Electricity - £20
Gas - £20
Water - £25

Also do you know if you get cable internet, you don't need a BT line (i.e. one extra cost I can do without!
