Roseville, CA utility costs are more affordable then most homes cost in California because they have City of Roseville utilities. If you live in an area with PG&E more than likely your bills are double if not more. PG&E is for gas in Roseville, CA. City of Roseville is water, sewage, garbage and power.

One of the biggest benefits of living in Georgia is utility choices. In most places you do not just have one choice. In Buford, the primary utility provider is City of Buford for gas and garbage. We use Georgia Power for electricity, and Gwinnett County is the water provider. One huge bonus to living in Buford is 2 garbage pick ups. We have a kitchen waste pick up on Monday and on Friday we have a larger trash pick up day. Also, it doesn’t matter how many trash bags you leave out, they take them all.
