    Question Cost of electricity?

    Just wondering form around the globe what a kilowatt hour of power costs?

    Living in South-Africa the infrastructure has never seen a real upgrade in 25 years!
    We are suffering rolling blackouts for some time now as the power production plants can't keep up.
    And new developments has turned into an international laughing stock of biblical proportions.
    The cost has gone up five fold over this time.

    Its a sad case of government looting and gross mismanagement that is already causing devastation.
    Much like Venezuela.

    Also rates are not the same for every class group...

    1Kw/h here its R2.3 So that would be 16c US.
    Whatever

    Ouch, that really stinks.

    Sorry to hear that reliable power is at such a premium.

    It's one of those things that never even really gets thought of in so many areas of the world...until it's a problem.

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.
    5) You are the person onsite. Only you can make observations.

    Varies with time of day and times vary seasonally:

    On Peak is $0.208/kWh
    Mid Peak is $0.144/kWh
    Off Peak is $0.101/kWh

    In Southern Ontario, Canada, prices in Kanukistanian Kopeks (CAD).

    Thought we were getting shafted here in SE Qld until I did the conversion, 25 c/KwH in Oz dollars which equates to about 17c US. Also have 18 solar panels on the roof which takes the edge off the power bill. Last bill was $113 AUD for 3 months and that was with Mrs Lagonda home most days running the air-con.
    At least 50% of IT is a solution looking for a problem.

    Ok we here are not out of range but the bigger problem here is not the cost but the availability.
    Use to be as cheap at chips.

    Got an inverter system, still need solar panels.
    Whatever
