Hey, what are some places with cheap power?  I found this site

http://205.254.135.7/state/state-energy-profiles-more-prices.cfm

but it only includes the US.  So miners, where do you live, and what's your price per KWH in USD?

what's your price per KWH in USD?

The Electricity pricing Wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electricity_pricing#Global_electricity_price_comparison shows the price per kWh in over two dozen countries.  The top three of those where electricity is the cheapest are Spain, Canada and Finland, each of which show electricity under $0.07 US per kWh. Germany, the Netherlands, Italy and Denmark are at the end of that list with electric rates over $0.30 US per kWh.

Though the U.S. average is now a little over $0.10 US per kWh, according to a U.S. Department of Energy monthly report http://www.eia.gov/electricity/monthly/excel/epmxlfile5_3.xls , the residential average is $0.12 US.  On the high end, excluding areas outside the contiguous U.S., are the Northeast states of New York, Connecticut and New Jersey with rates approaching $0.20 US.  On the low end are the Pacific Northwest states Washington and Idaho which are under $0.09 US.  As a rule of thumb, commercial rates can be calculated as being about 90% that of residental, though the report provides specific rates for each state.

Hmm, good chart.  Seems like Iceland is the cheapest country with nice conditions.  Anyone from Iceland that can speak about it?

Check these rates

You would think Canada is in trouble considering how inflated the energy prices are here.

Better to look at electricity costs in the US by state.   There are places in Texas where you can get (residential) elec for less than .08 per kwh (and some even cheaper, like Utah, Wyoming, Idaho... maybe .06c)

Dacentec, best deals for US dedicated servers. They regularly restock $20-$25 Opterons with 8-16GB RAM & 2x1-2TB HDD's (ofc, usually lots of other good stuff to choose from).  I did a Serverbear benchmark of one of my $20/mo Opteron (June last year), it's here.  Have had about a half dozen different servers with Dacentec, & none have failed to sustain at least 40MB/s (burst higher). My favorite is a 12-month rent-to-own ZT Systems 2XL5520 16GB 2x2TB SATA for $40/month (got lucky with the 'off-brand', haven't seen a RTO 2xL5520 for under $50/mo since -- at least for monthly contracts).  wholesaleinternet.com has some ancient 2-core intel CPUs @ $10/mo sometimes (I got an Intel Core 2 6300 @ 1.86GHz, with a 250GB HDD with 46000 hours on it, LOL. $20 @ Dacentec is much better, if you can grab one). joesdatacenter.com (same location as Wholesale Internet) also occasionally has specials (or if you don't want to wait, it has an AMD Opteron 170 @ $16/mo).

When I started this thread, I kind of wanted more of a survey of how much everyone is paying.  So this thread is continued in a new thread that gets right to the point.

Incorrect data for Russia, it's from 0.0393c to 0.10c. First being for citizens, and the later is for companies.

There is no place like 127.0.0.1
