This week’s real estate column in the WSJ written by Peter King focuses on energy costs. Where Utility Bills Are Low discusses three locations in the US with the lowest rates for kilowatt hours. Of the three locations mentioned, Fort Wayne, IN, Lincoln, NE, and St. Louis, MO, St. Louis ranks the most affordable at 5.5 cents per kilowatt hour.
To further decrease energy costs at the Mississippi Bluffs development, Lennox high-efficiency furnaces and AC units have been installed in each unit along with a premium insulation package. The roof of each unit rates at R49 and each demising wall is insulated to a value of R22.
