After reading Rodalco's thread on yearly power consumption, I thought it would be interesting to see what everyone is paying per kWh for power. Let's keep the thread simple and avoid anything political....just your rate.

I'm currently paying 6.658 cents / kWh in Southern British Columbia.

"Will it be cheaper if I drill the holes for you?"

Delivery Charge
First 250kWH 5.557 cents each
Next 1067 kWH 5.864 cents each
Market Supply charge 10.4210 cents each
then a few cents here and there for cost adjustments and surcharges.

So 1317 kWH cost me $226.80 or an average unit cost of 17.22 cents per kWH
