There is no such thing as an electrical bill. There's no difference in meaning between the other two, but Americans prefer electric bill...
...whereas Brits prefer electricity bill...
Since electricity is what you're paying for, I'd suggest that it's "Electricity Bill", but the others are often used in conversation.
"Electric bill" implies that the bill runs on electricity. "Electric" is used to mean that something uses electricity, and therefore would be inapprorpiate in this context.
"Electrical bill" is a bill that is concerned with electricity, and so would be appropriate.
An "Electricity bill" is a bill paying for electricity, and I believe this is the best option, (as do most electricalelectricity companies.)
To sum up, "electrical" and "electricity" are both appropriate in this context, and personally, I think "electricity bill" is the best option.
