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
Wow which provider provided this Large power plan in TX? I wanna check the availability in Houston!

Just got my bill and I spilled into Southern California Edison's tier 3 billing so $0.25/kw  Shocked

I think that's the generation charge only for Tier 3 (I have SCE too).  If you add Delivery/Transmission and taxes you go close to $0.35 per KWh.  It sucks too that Tier 3 is only about 80 KWh because Tier 4 goes over $0.40 and Tier 5 goes past $0.50  Angry

That's why I have to mine offsite from my house  Angry

The charge is for both generation and distribution. Bill total divided by total KW used was a bit shy of $0.15/KW, but it would obviously go up with more mining since any more power used would be at $0.25/KW.

Grrr, this is a total ripoff. Probably SCE transmission cables are gold plated like Monster cables Cheesy

Wow which provider provided this Large power plan in TX? I wanna check the availability in Houston!

it's a coop...   wouldn't be available in any area where there is competition, I guess?

http://www.tvec.net/member-info/rates.html

note that it says .1048xxx but the last 6 months or so have actually been adjusted -2.5c because of "cheap natural gas"

after looking at 'large power' more, i think you'd have to use some extreme amts of energy to make up for those flat charges.   i was also just assuming the 2 to 2.5c reduction applied to all the other plans too, but maybe not.

there's the $20 meter reading fee, but i'd have to pay that anyway (i.e. not some extra charge from running tons of computers)

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.

Below I have broken down cost for residential vs comercial small buisness rates in Alberta.

Even provided examples of locked in rates vs normal regulated rates.

In this area power is regulated along with the transmission and distribution and even local access fees. It can be almost the cost of the electricity itself.

Follow the link below.
