    I don't have a water meter at home. My water is included in property tax (nominal amount + fixed extra because I have a pool).

    I don't have gas at home. No gas service. I use electricity for heating purposes (Electric ductless heat pump + electric baseboard). I am in Quebec.

    I think posting $ values is not useful. I would post consumption numbers for a better comparison.

    For example, the average household in Edmonton uses 16.3m3 of water per month. Western European households use 11m3 of water per month.
    We've been able to average 12m2 per month of water and in our new house we are substantially lower, under 8m3 per month averaged over the year.
