Don't forget they had to rebuild the bridge set after it caught fire in between s3 and 4, I think it was.
Insurance almost certainly paid for that; if it didn't, I'd still be surprised if those costs were charged against the series budget.

The lighting bill on DS9 just to light up the Pormenade and Quarks alone must have been though the roof considering they film for 14 to 16 hours a day!!!
I'm sure the average lighting cost of the series was no more expensive than the average lighting bill incurred by other Paramount productions each day. The lighting of Hollywood sets -- any set -- is rather elaborate.
