The electricity number is not off. Kw/h cost in Portugal is about 0.22 Eur/cents, avg consumption is 2800-3000 per year. Do the math. If you spend 90 per month, that just means you consume a lot.
Raul Peixoto on Mar 03, 2018:
Electricity alone, is usually not less than 90 euro. A realistic utilities fee (electricity, water, internet) would be around 200 euro.
