Current cost for electricity based on coal fired hydro-electric is $16 per megawatt. I can attest this is accurate by my electric bill.

Do you even know what a megawatt is?

its a unit of elecricity/power equaling one million watts or 1000 kilowatts, etc.

if you wish to know more on how this relates to real world electricity usage and billing, please visit: http://michaelbluejay.com/electricity/cost.html and http://www.tipsandtricks-hq.com/the-differences-between-power-watts-and-energy-kilowatts-hour-kwh-393

Now, there is quite a disparity between what providers pay for electricity and the end costs to the consumer. The wages for electric company employees, taxes, infrastructure and support costs (and much more) makes up the disparity.

but the real costs we will be paying is jumping from $16 per megawatt to between $136 and $397 per megawatt.

Now, there is quite a disparity between what providers pay for electricity and the end costs to the consumer.

So, do you think this disparity accounts for the fact that you've read some articles you don't understand and have mistaken Watts for Watt-hours?

The disparity was explained to you.

Here is what you are either not understanding... or intentionally trying to confuse so others may not grasp its full effect and meaning:

The actual cost providers pay for electricity is going up between 850% and 2480%.

These price increases are a direct result of the war on coal.

These price increases are not estimates. They are already agreed to and contracted. These increases WILL HAPPEN unless we take measures to stop them.

These costs will be passed on the electricity consumer.

This means every electricity consumers bills will rise between 850% and 2480%.


... unless we contact our legislators and undo this financial rape only meant to decrease our wealth and ability to survive and thrive.

How dare you, to expect him to tell apart the difference in MW and MWh whilst power plants provide him with energy.  Grin

The paining (sic!) is done with the QPainter class inside the paintEvent() method.
