Why is my electricity bill increasing each month even though Iím using the same or less electricity?

Your monthly Electricity bill can increase due to any of the following reasons:

(1) Increases in the fuel adjustment charge (see response to question 1).

(2) Increase in the number of days in the billing cycle.

(3) Under-estimate of a previous month’s bill which was based on an interim reading.

(4) Reduced efficiency of electrical appliances in your home as they become older.
