Couple of things, having worked for the electric company here in montana...if you stop using an electric appliance for one month you will not see much of a difference on your bill since the billing period ends like two weeks before you get the bill...making your not using the appliance only two weeks on the bill for the following month. Also anything that is electric that HEATS ie, dryer, hot water heater, electric space heater, dishwasher with heater etc uses a tremendous amount of electricity...more than you can ever imagine, even an electric coffee pot , slow cooker or electric skillet has a huge draw. My power for electricity only is bout 120 per month and that is all gas for the generator as that is all we have so far, that , batteries and an inverter.
