Care to compare electric rates?
Thought it might be interesting to see how electric rates compare around the world. However you can't just take the rate they show on the bill. You need to get your true cost, which would include taxes, fees, etc. To get this figure, take your electric bill, divide the amount you're billed for electricity (including taxes and other fees, since you have to pay for that) and divide it by the number of Kilowatt hours you used. For instance, my bill this month was $40.66 for 330 Kwh used. So I divide $40.66 by 330 to get the per KwH rate. $40.66/330=$.12321212121212, which makes my total cost 12.3 per KwH. (FWIW, a couple years ago my rate was about 14Â¢/KwH - some things are cheaper these days!)
I like the feature on my bill where they compare the last years avg temp and cost per day to this years use. We were much colder this year than last year during this period and accordingly my useage was higher.
So, what's your 'tricity costing you?
