    If you live in housing on base....

    Advertisements
    What is included for utilities? Electric, water, and gas? Or would we have to still pay those bills and it's just rent free?

    TIA

    Should all be included. Some places if you go over the allotted for electric will make you pay the difference in the cost.

    All of ours is included but they are starting this thing in October where they will take an average of the electricity that the houses on your block/street and of the similiar family size use and if you come within $15 of the average you are fine, but if you are over that, you get a bill. There is some act or name for it, but I'm too lazy to find the paperwork on it.

    Not sure if this is for every military base/post but at least for JBLM it is.

    This is what they're doing starting in October where I live as well. Otherwise everything is included (other than the "extras" like cable, internet, etc).

    I've been hearing that some bases are privatizing because people are abusing they system. Keeping the house around 60 during the summer and 80 in the winter.

    What it will be is you get what they will pay for. You pay the difference. Kinda like an allowance. This was being talked in Montana and Wyoming.
