I'm taking a bit of a poll, and I'm kinda curious who pays how much per kWh and where with who? I'm kinda betting Australia is currently the dearest (or one of).  This information may be useful to anyone that wants to startup a mining Investment company.

Also, no smartarses who get free power (or who steal power from work...)   Grin
I'll add everyone's responses to this first post.

I'll start...

i'm part of an electric commune here in NE texas (near Tyler, Texas, or about 100 miles east-southeast of dallas), so can't switch providers like most ppl in US.

in any case, elec was ~9.9c until I started using >2000kwh, now it's 7.9c

Dacentec Dedicated Servers (Lenoir, NC, USA) from $25/mo & Time4VPS Storage VPS' (Vilnius, Lithuania) from €18/qtr & Hetzner's serverbidding, from ~€20/mo -- had bitcoin nodes & p2pool (dacentec, hetzner) for several years on these.  Only two are affiliate links too, kek! -------  Feel free to join my G2A Goldmine Pyramid Scheme Team, or possibly even buy a Steam game from there.  Maybe.

The three you didn't "understand" were provider, which means you have no idea who you pay for your electricity; country, which means you don't know which country California is located in; and current as @, which means you don't know the last time you looked at your bill... I don't get it.  Roll Eyes

^^ is giving us pot smokers a bad name Tongue



3 tiers could be On-Peak, Mid-Peak, Off-Peak....



3 different amounts per tier.... eg .10, .07, .05


That's my guess.... I don't pay for power on my mining rigs...

Located in the Netherlands, also pretty expensive here:

During the day: $ 0.2831
During night: $ 0.2563

But last year the electricity meter was broken for 6 months, and they didn't charge me anything.
I suspected they would just take some average... but no :-D

Despite being an oil country, 60% of electricity is hydropower, in the state where I live, there is four big dams totaling near 17000MW of power, all in just one river "Caroní", just google it  Grin . Gas: 2.25 cents a liter. Overall economy  Sad

Let me make the numbers again: 0.097VEB/lt. 1USD=4.3VEB. 0.097/4.3=0.0225USD. 2.25cents Wink

Also, I work for the power company and they pay me near $80 monthly as "help" to pay my power bill, there is the dam where I work: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Macagua_Dam Cheesy
