Northern Utah

May-September
8.4004¢ per kWh first 400 kWh
10.3481¢ per kWh next 600 kWh
12.8709¢ per kWh all additional kWh

Oct-April
8.7035¢ per kWh all kWh

http://www.rockymountainpower.net/content/dam/rocky_mountain_power/doc/About_Us/Rates_and_Regulation/Utah/Approved_Tariffs/Rate_Schedules/Residential_Service.pdf


Even at $0.075 for residential and $0.08 for small business the "hidden tax" for power can be substantial.

Here is the added charges for Alberta Power Users.

Residential

Distribution   $0.51906 per day base fee of  $17.13 on a 33 Day billing cycle.
                         $0.00626 per kWh
 
Transmission    $0.02135 per kWh
Rider K               $0.0058 per kWh

Local Access Fee $0.0066 per kWh

This adds $0.04 per kWh on top of your $0.075 rate. Making your residential rate $0.115 Average for 25 GH/sec with 67 GPU's eats up just over 11kWh x 24h = 264kWh per day on a 33 day billing cycle eats up 8712kWh a month.

Factor in the $6.14 "admin" charge and you have a monthly bill of $1025.15 @ residential rates.


**********************************************************


Small Business Rates

Distribution    $0.28839 per day base fee of  $9.52 on a 33 Day billing cycle.
                         $0.02081 per kWh
 
Transmission   $0.02216 per kWh
Rider K              $0.0058 per kWh

Local Access Fee $0.0066 per kWh

This adds $0.05537 per kWh on top of your $0.08 rate. Making your residential rate $0.13537 Average for 25 GH/sec with 67 GPU's eats up just over 11kWh x 24h = 264kWh per day on a 33 day billing cycle eats up 8712kWh a month.

Factor in the $6.49 "admin" charge and you have a monthly bill of $1195.35 @ Small Business Rates.

"Note"
 
The local access fee is not regulated by the AUC, this is a charge leveied by the City of Edmonton and is passed on by the Distributor. This targets renters to pay a form of property tax instead of increasing property tax for the property owners. All combined not including the per day distribution rate, increases rates by $0.05537 per kWh.

My cost is $0.0985 per kWh and there there is that damned tax added on top of that ... 13%  And, of course, a monthly service charge for the privelage of having electricity which is currently $19.73

At least in the winter months the heat from the gpu keeps the basement nice and warm  Smiley

In the UK and just changed providers so now paying approx $0.15 per kWh.  I was paying quite a bit more.  Last year I was paying nothing and mining like crazy but due to the current difficulty level it makes mining borderline profitable at present.

I've posted my offer in the German subforum only... maybe I should have mentioned it here, too:

I can offer (GPU-)miner-housing at 12 Eurocent/kWh "all inclusive" (rent for space, internet, fresh-air-cooling) in Austria, near Graz. Could be useful especially for miners from European Union... if you're interested, send a PM to discuss further details.

Back to thread topic: How much do I pay for electricity: little less than 12ct/kWh  Wink

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

How in the world do you survive on less than 340kWh/month?!?!?! Looking through my 2012 bills, my lowest usage was 580kWh/month before mining, highest was 1180kWh/month with a 5970 and 5870 mining, and I'm only in a two-bedroom apartment (electric stove, electric heat/ac).

That said, I pay $0.093/kWh flat rate in Rolla, MO.  Not too bad.

I posted on another one of these threads, was running ~8c per kwh then... now it's ~7c per kwh... (3 cent reduction instead of 2 cent)

last month was $245.62 for 3590kwh (i'm leaving out the $20 'customer charge' since i'd have to pay that regardless). 

the tiers here, you pay less if you use more electricity.  i  found it pretty odd when ppl started mentioning how they pay more if they use over a certain amt.   delivering a large quantity of something to 5 ppl beats delivering a small quantity to 20. 


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).

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.
I am literally a county south and I pay .065 cents for first 1k KW and .075 cents thereafter. Glad I'm not in the City.

FFS I can't believe what some people are paying! And I thought mine was bad...

In WI, I'm considered R3 (even without mining) which is the highest, there is no R4)

Subsidized Residential is like .027/KWH
(Income restrictions)

Residential 1 is about .05/KWH
(Apartment/Condo)

Residential 2 is tiered .02-.12/KWH
(Small house/large Appt or Condo)

Residential 3 is tiered .04-.14/KWH
(Large house)

In my case it's 12hrs peak and 12hrs off-peak. I don't remember exactly but I think I chose 6AM-6PM peak hours. We're able to choose 6-6, 7-7, 8-8, or 9-9...

It's worked out very nice in winter! With all the 6970s and 5970s I've been running I could literally TURN OFF my heat in the house if it was above 25F outside (in a 4,000 sq ft home) and stay above 70F!! Those things really kick out the heat!

The entire operation is moving to the data center I work at though once our ASICs arrive. We need the added security for our new ASIC Mining Contracts but we'll be running on wind/solar there. Commercial 4 is actually less if we need to failover to the grid for power!? WTF...

My parents come from a 3rd world country and very on I learned to live very frugally.  I got my first smartphone just 3 months ago (no text or data before that) and before that I was paying $80/month on Verizon of all things. My wife and I put less than a combined 17k on our 2 cars and we are professionals with doctorates and incorporated with businesses.  My parents house and my own house have never had any form of cable TV - don't feel like paying $100/mo when I don't have time to even take a piss without holding a baby lol.

If I made money hand over fist like people think all physicians do then yes I might consider burning electricity like mad.  Sadly that is not the case and I try to live as cheaply as possible sans the occasional splurge on a $3K DSLR or something like that.

Never thought to do a search for folks from my hometown.

Also keep in mind that when RMU's supply runs low they fire up diesel generators to make up the shortfall.  How's that for being green Smiley.
