Was just curious how everyone's electric bills have been affected using these systems?

Well, it all depends on the charges imposed by your country.
For me, just another 25% increase with 5 IPC cameras.
It's still falls within my monthly consumption based on average same household electricity bills in my country.

Depends on the amount of the current bill. The Wattage is listed in the specs for the products, and is typically ~10W for a cam, which is approximately 10USD/year for my area. The IR illuminators increase Wattage at night, but depends on whether one chooses to use IR. The PoE switch will have some increment of Wattage due to efficiency losses, but I hazard that it will be modest as well, IMHO.
