Electricy costs and usage.

Just curious what everyone is paying per kilowatt and how much of your electricy bill is from your aquariums.

I pay per the following schedule.

Jun-Sept $.0488/kWh
Oct-May $.0395/kWh

Last month I used 1399 Kilowatts. Probably 50% of that is from my tanks.

We get so screwed by ConEdison in NY.

I pay about 0.13 - 0.16/kWh and use about 280 kWh per month (Oct-May) in my 1 BR apartment. I have a dishwasher and the three operational tanks. I figure that the tanks cost me about $15 a month in electrical costs per month. With all my partial water changes, thank goodness my water usage is included in the rent!

Yep. Nothing beats walking in the door. Sitting down in your fav chair and looking around and thinking. This is ALL MINE. Every payment goes toward owning another small chunk vs helping someone else pay off their mortgage.

Menagerie, wow canada's nice. Free electric.

My tanks add a very minimal amount to my horrid bills.
About a 25 dollar difference per month. My rates are terrible.
