California Is Expensive

Here's our power bill........"over baseline usage" @ .19 cents a kwh.  Ouch.  Guess that's why solar is so popular here.  We were paying .08 cents per kwh in Washington.  This is running a 1500kw electric heater for 30 min in the morning, electric fridge, electric water heater.  Next month we will switch back to propane to see a cost comparison.   Somewhere on the internet there is a cost comparison of propane vs. electricity per btu based on the per gallon price of propane, etc.  I'm thinking we are on the wrong end of the curve using electricity in California.

Some screen grabs of cost comparisons of electricity vs propane assuming 80% efficiency.  Propane at $3.50 gallon wins in California.

Now living in Juneau, Alaska. Trying to absorb as much of this state as we can, before our time here ends.
