I want to compare electricity rates around the world or US and if possible what your energy comes from.
 Some links from:
  http://www.bitcoinminer.com/post/2361900289

  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electricity_pricing#Global_electricity_price_comparison
  http://www.eia.doe.gov/cneaf/electricity/epm/table5_3.html
  http://www.eia.doe.gov/cneaf/electricity/epm/table5_6_a.html

  http://www.energy.eu/#Domestic
  http://www.energy.eu/#Industrial

There are other concerns:
  In some situations, the rate varies based on time-of-day peak periods:
  http://www.bitcoinminer.com/post/2858427974

  And for others, there marginal rate is significantly higher than the average rate.
  (i.e., the electricity for a miner is added consumption, so the each additional kWh for mining starts at the highest rate)
  For example:
  http://coloradoindependent.com/78499

  
Quote
Currently customers pay 4.6 cents per kwh for the first 500 kwh and then 9 cents for each additional kWh during the summer.
 
Quote
About 70 percent of households use 800 kilowatt hours or less [per monthly billing cycle].

  For reference, a miner running dual HD 5970s consumes more than 500 kWh per month, so the typical household in the example above will, with this miner, pay the higher rate for each kWh consumed by it.

Thanks for the link, somehow I didn't see it when I searched and then relocated it after this thread was already rolling.
I'm guessing I'm not the only one or one of the first few would have done what you did =)

Thanks though that's a hell of a lot more than I would have been able to compile.

StoneTZ: $ .25 USD / Kw - Chile - Guessing my power is from oil or coal. Sad

Hydroelectric actually. They are saying there will be a drought this year too so it's likely to rise even more. Also the tree huggers won't let us build any more dams and though there's talks of constructing nuclear plants, we won't be getting one for many years to come.

Was kidding with you man; it becomes more expensive per KW, the more electricity used.

My girlfriend told me it's probably hydroelectric. All I know is there's a giant oil refinery a few miles from my house =) came to mind when I was thinking where I get my power. I'm going to research it now. I know there's a group promoting wind and I saw where they tried (failed) geothermal up in Northern Chile.

Haha yeah guessed so, kind of goes against the "save by buying in bulk" marketing plan but I guess it's more of the "got you buy the balls so pay what we want but we won't overcharge the average consumer so there's a revolt" plan. Makes sense.

Ouch that's rough, can almost run a diesel generator for that.
It's California though not going to pretend to be that surprised.

Canada's awesome! $0.10 peak, $0.06 off peak. Cool

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

And you could run a natural gas generator for less then that.  In CA, with the subsidies, solar makes a lot of sense.

I just checked my last invoice and my cost is 0.132162 EUR/kWh (about 0.18 USD), plus 18% VAT that would be 0.15595116 EUR/kWh (about 0.22 USD).

I am in southern Spain.

We have many different prices in different regions of Russia. It's cheaper if there is hydroelectric plant nearby or if house has electric oven istalled.
In Moscow, price for buildings without natural gas supply is $0.08 normal, $0.095 peak and $0.02 off-peak (8 hours per day are off-peak), that's ~$0.065 if running something 24/7.

Cost of energy production directly at hydroelectic plant is about $0.0014

Brazil:

$ 0,2844 per KWh. Without taxes, it would be 0,1863.

Im shocked as I discovered how high is the cost of eletricity in here... And even more shocked because hydroeletric gen is our main source - 74%.
