There is a community called Riverlife which has 8 homes and one account for all utilities. It works for them, but they have a very strong shared vision which guides their interaction. Everyone pays an equal share of all the bills. I asked a woman who lived there about that and about inequities and her response was that because she cared about the group so much, she would feel really badly if she was using more than the average share of the utilities and so would not do that, or would offer to may extra on her share. Another person I talked with said the same thing. He could not imagine someone being a utilities hog and not offering to pay extra on their share. He said people have paid extra on their shares for things like computer use or house visitors and the extra goes into an overflow account, which is used in the winter when the bills are higher.
