Hello Junks- This varies greatly based on many things. Is the hot water paid by tenant, and if so is it an electric HW heater? There are other factors as well. Are you paying for heat, or not?
If you are only paying for lights and basic appliances and typical wall outlets (no electric dryer), then for a small/ 1 BR apt I can't see it costing more than $20- $25 per month.

Good luck,
Ken L.

There is no average, but you can ask the property manager to give you an estimate. If you have a specific property in mind you can call the electric company and just ask for the history. You need to know these things to budget properly.

When it comes to utilities, much will depend on usage--ask the current occupant for an estimate of cost or ask anyone else who may have the same size apartment.
