    In my part of Utah, we pay:

    first 700 kWh, $.0615 per kWh
    next 800 kWh, $.056 per kWh
    anything above 1500 kWh, $.037 per kWh.

    Seeing what most of you pay makes me :eek:! Holy cow batman!

    If my electric rates were that low, I can guarantee you that I'd have a 45 foot Jacob's Ladder in the front yard just for giggles.

    ClarkT, are you including taxes, supply, distribution, etc?

    I share Tex's concern about adding electric car charging stations to the grid. The impact of migration to electric cars needs to be carefully considered.

    The car angle in relation to the grids current condition is something I never thought of:eek:!!! I am sure our leaders have not thought that topic out either.
    If I had rates that low I would buy a huge tesela coil and turn it on out side at nite for my amusement.

    Mine is a very leaky, antique house and the weather has been very cold with lots of heavy snow and high winds pounding the house. We keep the thermostat at 72º and the house stays cosy and warm, thanks to our Waterfurnace. Our solar voltaic system had been thickly covered with frozen snow and ice and was not producing for a long time. It's finally clear, so should be making power again.

    Our historic use of power averaged $136 a month including taxes, etc. without geothermal. So that would make the current heating bill $465.01, even with our outrageously high electric rates. I'm paying about $1100 a month for oil for my Mom's house which is about the same size, but at 62º because it's empty and for sale.
