The new homes including Lennar are built to the new 2009 IECC which is a newly adopted energy code. These homes should all have been inspected and tested by a rater like myself to verify. Make sure you ask to make sure if you choose to buy one yours was inspected. As for the bills they will be based on the occupants inside. You might be in the $150-$250 range for power and gas. If you work from home it might be more. Also make sure you get a home inspection no matter if it's old or new. In fact a new home can be inspected during the various stages of construction. Don't rely on the local building officials inspection.

sewer is around $100 quarterly. Water ranges from $20-70 a month depending on how much lawn you are watering. Garbage is $44 every 3 months. Gas and electricity range from a low of around $150 (spring and winter) to around $350 (summer and winter months) That is for a 3/2 single story house with around 2100 sq ft. Cable or Satellite is probably $60 plus $30 or so for internet.

I agree that the more accurate resource would be to contact the power company directly as well as water. Reason being, your monthly expenses are going to depend on your usage which depends on your habits. So three occupants, for example - 3 adults? 2 adults 1 child? 1 adult 2 children? Daily baths? Daily showers? Inside and outside lighting? TV/computer time? Sprinklers - front? Back? Air conditioner/hearter usage? Green-featured appliances? The list goes on and on. So, it truly is best to contact the utility companies, your self, so you can discuss your personal istuation and obtain any cost saving ideas from them. Otherwise you can only obtain opinions here which are not really reliable to your fact finding when specifics are not known.

If you need telephone numbers for the various utility companies, lets me know. If not, good luck in your home search.
