A US penny per kWh? Jesus. That's damn near free.

It says on his user page he's from Venezuela, I wonder if he was responsible for the shortages last year?

The problem with having such low rates is that you then have entire week-long periods where you have a shortage and no electricity at all. Since most of it is water-powered, it's not like they can just fire up another coal generator and get more electricity in the system or anything... So yeah, $.01/kWh, with a run time of maybe 16 hours/day on average throughout the year... Still quite a bit cheaper and maybe justifiable, anyone want to sneak a couple pallets of FPGAs into the country and set up a shop?

Oh, and I pay $.05/kWh this winter, it'll go up to $.12kWh this summer, I think average is like $.08/kWh, supposedly. I hope to be primarily FPGA mining by May/June.

The shortage was on mid-2010, as we had a drought, and our main hydroelectric dam(Guri Dam) was reaching minimum water level(crisis was averted by like 10 meters of water, it was a close call), so we had 3 hour planned blackouts every day, for rationing. In 2011 we had several unplanned blackouts due to lack of maintenance of the grid. Even the government said once that an iguana ate some wires in an official statement. I started mining in May 2011, the crisis was solved by then.

Now we don't have long blackouts, most of them are 5-10 minutes power failures like once a month, and I have an UPS with two 62AH batteries for that.

Anyway, if you're interested in getting some FPGA's here, I'm open to all business ventures.

About .097-.105 /kWh here in South Carolina, looks like it stays the same all year, keeping my fingers crossed for a mild summer.

If. I've tended to notice the guys hashing away in their parent's basement, at college, or on their landlord's dime tend to have about ~500 mhs or less total on the forums. But yeah, mine with much more and I'm sure you're going to draw unwanted attention.
