Hello, what is the average electric bill for a studio/eff or a one bed room apt for a couple living on st croix? I'm trying to figure out a general average number thanks!

Depends, primarily on usage. Will you have a/c? Washer/dryer? Dishwasher? All will affect your cost.

You'll have electricity usage for your fans, refrigerator, each time you use water pump, water heater, lights, microwave, TV, computer, etc. Depends on usage.

Another factor is going to be whether your windows are large enough & facing right to give you good breezes so you use the fans less often. With good breezes your WAPA bill could be barely over $100, but at least $150 if the fan is the only breeze & a few hundred if you get desperate enough to resort to AC.

Having a gas stove is a real money saver.
