The minimum wage it's like $465 monthly, i'm in the $2000+ range, basic, no counting extra hours and benefits. But that isn't the end of the story, the inflation make that worth nothing.  Tongue
A good lunch it's about $25, a beer it's like $2.35...
A HD5850 cost like a minimum wage. Cry
My Mitsubishi Lancer 2.0 Touring (not Evolution, it's like the 2007 Ralliart US version) cost me near $42000.  Cry Cry Cry
Also we don't have easy access to foreign exchange...

The price of power in USD over a monthly billing cycle from the power provider in northern California.



(m => 10-3) The final price at the end of the billing cycle is $0.41160 (kWh pricing is based on usage tiers)

Gotta love PG&E...

Gotta love demand meters with KVAR checks on commercial buildings. Demand charges are close to $15.00/kw when exceeding contract levels.

Yes, although $385 is not really that much. We are amongst the most expensive countries in the world. My monthly train commute is more. A pizza + coke in a restaurant is $50. 0.5 liter of beer can costs $16 at some bars.

I don't know if it is like this in other countries. I pay one company for connection to the grid and transport of power. In Norwegian it is called "nettleie", directly translated "grid rent". And I pay another company for the electricity. The latter I can choose freely.

Wow... Seems complicated..... so the $385 per year is for the grid rental. We (Ontario Canada) have charges for delivery of power.... flat rate montly fee...


$16 for a pint of beer seems very expensive... I guess  it depends where you live....

WOW that's amazing...... It seems like some places have cheap $kwh but what about hidden charges? such as: a user being charged a $385 per year grid rental....



Are any of you getting charged large fee's ontop of the kwh rate?

UTAH Or USA, lol

6 cents per KW/H after you hit a certain level it drops to 5 cents 4, etc... the basic monthly fee is 3.50 plus usage..

( I know, I should have started mining a long time ago, didnt realize my city owned its own windmill energy farm/system and we get a heck of a deal since we sell most of our power out of state)

Yup, FPGAs (and even more so the ASICs promised) will make the cost of electricity less of a factor for a period of time.

That's why there has been only relatively small increases in the hashing capacity even though a lot of FPGAs have been shipping -- the GPUs are being decommissioned in high cost (for electricity) areas.  Some GPUs are getting bought by those with low cost of electricity but you can only add so many GPUs before you need to start doing rewiring or bigger fans to remove heat, etc.

there are no tiers on my current plan.  for the last 6mo it's been ~8c/kwh,

this is near Tyler, Tx

Natural gas prices, which dictate the market price of wholesale electricity, remain at record lows.    (well, for this area anyway)

but, there is this other plan, where the first 1500 kwh is 10.9c, next 1000kwh is 9.3c, and all kwh after that is 6.9c

then this "Large Power" plan where the minimum bill is $475, with rate of 5.14c

all the poor wind farms that cant even get their electricity on the grid
