Shared Utilities

We are looking at how to pay the utility bills in the most
equitable and cost effective way.  Have other cohousing groups had
shared utilites?  For example, the community has one master electric
meter and private individual meters for each unit.   Individuals then
pay for their utilities through the monthly association fees.

Has your group done something similar?  If so, how has it worked?  We
would appreciate hearing how this idea has worked or not worked for
other groups.
