    Just curious what everyone is paying for electricity these days. It seems to me that electricity is not going up like the other heating fuels are.

    Here in central Indiana near the Wabash I pay:

    First 300 Kwh is $0.10792 per Kwh
    Next 700 Kwh is $0.06915 per Kwh
    Over 1000 Kwh is $0.05944 per Kwh

    The above costs include all the riders but no sales tax.

    Maryland 10.86 cents/kWh. California & Hawaii are more, but not sure if any other states are. We heat with wood wich is definetly cheaper.

    Laura: Depends on where you live. I'm on a municipal system on MD eastern shore and rates are considerably less than you quote above and fluxuate based on the cost of natural gas used to generate electricity. Oh ya, the municipal was not part of the MD "experiment in partial deregulation" that caused rates to skyrocket in some places like BGE did.

    Cheapest for me was when I was in the TVA areas of TN. They almost gave it away because it was all hydro/nuclear.

    Some day we will wake up and understand that nuclear is the way to go for electric generation. Sadly probably not in my lifetime. bob finger

    Sounds like you work for the evil empire. Is your job on the St. Louis or Metro East side of the river?

    I am fortunate to be on TVA. Our home is total electric and my bill last month was less than $125.00. Not too shabby for a 4br/3bath home.

    Texas deregulated a few years ago and the price of electricity went up considerably. I pay 11.9 cents/kilowatt hour and I have the lowest rate in the state. Deregulation DID NOT WORK in Texas. And we have the largest wind farm in the US just a few miles away.

    My latest bill:

    01/24 KWH actual 79957
    12/17 estimated - 78604 = 1893 KWH

    Basic service 36 days @ $.179
    300 KWH @$.0857
    1593 KWH @$.0787
    Sub Total $157.52
    Power Supply Charges 1893 KWH @$.096396 182.48
    Others including taxes 22.00
    Total $362.00

    This is the Long Island Power Authority which was established to "Save the consumer money." No wonder people are leaving the Island.

    PS I have gas heat and I don't even want to say what that bill was.

    Naperville IL (Chicago Metro - west suburb) went out for bid last year when our rates endded their last guarantee lock. My rate for electric is $0.073/KWH + customer charge + nominal municipal & state taxes.

    Winter usage of 500 KWHs = $50 ($35+15)

    Down here in OZ we [Country Energy] service 95% of New South Wales and our house charges are 16cents per unit [1 Kwh] and 8 cents per unit for Off Peak Hot water heating . We purchase our bulk supply from TransGrid who in turn buy it from the generators [ Delta Power, Maquarie Power Etc] The state Govt. is looking to sell/hire our generators to any private Co. and the Chinese are VERY interested

    $0.1368/KWH after all the extras are added on. Not Amerens, but they probably supply it.

    Glasman - I see where CA is going... talk about penalties for usage! If you used what FlaLagarto does in FLA, the rate might climb to $0.75 or a $1/KWH!

    Skeels... can I run a 200 mile extension cord over to your neck of the woods?!
    I like IN concept of volume discounts - would help me with my pool/AC in summer!

    I don't know if regulation is keeping my cost low or if it is because I am close to a coal supply. I hope it stays low because I do not look forward to putting a wood boiler in the back yard!
