Electric Cost Per Kilowatt-Hour Up 14%

I was just looking at my electric bill and noticed my cost per kilowatt-hour is up 14% from this time last year. That’ s not my “consumption” or number of hours used… that’s the cost for the same amount of power.

Some of that is due to a small increase in taxes, but I bet most of that is due to the rising cost of fuels. The rate of increase is a lot faster than inflation.

On the positive side, I have made a lot of modifications to my home over the years that decrease energy consumption. Now they are paying off even more than expected! Get with the program everyone! Tint your windows, replace light bulbs with CF and LED bulbs, get a programmable thermostat.
