How much energy do you have to consume to spendf $526 on electricity in Illinois?
___This guy must run an Arc welder in the garage 24/7 and is heating his neighborhood w/ a 3,000 W Space heater … OUTSIDE!
___Our new rates aren’t that much different then the old ones. It used to be $0.08x/kWh for the first 400 kWh and $0.06x for everything over that. The new rate is $0.071/kWh. Do the math and this guy is out of fricken control with his electrical energy consumption! And I am personally glad he pays that much to the power company downstate for consuming far more electricity then any average household I have ever heard of in a given month!
