How much do you pay for power and where do you live?  I'll start:

$0.1102 per KWH in Tallahassee, FL USA

Link here: http://www.talgov.com/you/customer/helpful/rates.cfm?src=reselec

Edit: My power is flat rate residential.  Please include details of your pricing structure if it's not flat rate.

In some areas there is tiered pricing based on consumption.   In other areas there is peak/off peak pricing.   And there is commercial / residential status as well.

So the responses might be more useful if more details about the rate were given.

Good point.  This is why I also linked to my utility services website.  I'll edit my post  Smiley

But tell us, how much do you pay for power?

Fortunately I have a heat pump, so the neighbors don't realize I'm actually running the A/C anytime it gets above 40 Smiley   Gonna have to figure out the best undervolts come June 1st tho....

This past month I unfortunately hit Tier 5 with Southern California Edison because I was setting a couple of rigs at home and testing for stability.  Tier 5 costs me $0.39/KWH  Angry  Normally I only mine on one main PC at home with a 6950 which puts me into Tier 4 (more than 340KWH) which costs $0.30 (this is with the winter discount pricing).  Obviously I'm losing money mining at home, but my main rig would be on anyways pulling 100 watts as a file server part of the time.  I don't think anybody can mine in CA without having free electricity  Tongue

Wow, power in CA is expensive.  Where do you get free/cheap power from for your not-at-home rigs?

Wife has an office she's paying $4k a month for rent and utilities.  She also put $200K of upgrades into the office - so I'm just trying to get a little more out of it lol.  I just hope I don't burn the place down with my open air rigs - some sitting on cardboard boxes  Grin  I will have to shut down some rigs in the summer since AC is only on during business hours and it gets up to 105F sometimes here in the summer.

Ditto.  SCE prices are ridiculous.  Part of LA runs on LADWP and it is much better:  $.07-.12/KWH

.15/kwh in maine. It cost me less with southern california edison when I lived there! The only advantage here is unlike SCE the rape stick doesn't come out once you go above a certain # of kwh. One would think due to the proximity to Quebec's hydro power we'd share in on some of those sweet .05-.06 rates, but unfortunately no such luck.

The only way to get $0.15 for Southern California Edison is to stay in Tier 1 (Tier 2 is $0.19/KWH).  To stay in tier 1 you can't have a refrigerator.  When my wife lived alone in an apartment in 2006 she was in Tier 2 and she was home only to sleep and shower pretty much (maybe 1 or 2 hours of a compact florescent a day - she's pretty cheap).  Spend just 300 KWH and you're already in Tier 4.  I wonder how much businesses get nailed by SCE  Shocked

So.Cal Edison's residential tier system is pretty ridiculous and definitely non-conducive to mining.  For business, the tiers work a little differently than residential (based on peak power demand).  The first tier goes up to 20kw I believe and is $.17/kwh.  I tried to have the garage classified as a 'business' and get the bus rate, but no dice.  Sad

300kwh was still in tier 1 where I was. Tier1 went up to 450kwh or so. In the summer I used about 400-450kwh a month on average running AC when I was home and fridge, kept computer off when I was gone. The difference was hot water was provided by the landlord. Electric hot water can drive the bill up a bit. The tiers were different during the winter season, I think that is when it may have been 300kwh per month for tier 1. They've probably raised the rates/restructured the tiers since I was there, I don't remember it being .15/kwh in tier 1.
