Good Day!
Would someone please inform me of the current electric costs per kilowatt hour. I have searched the forum and can only find info from 2011. I would appreciate both residential and commercial rates, if possible.
Thanks!

Think conservation instead of rate, so you have more control over your bill. I can't figure out how people here can justify freezers, crock pots, clothes dryers, etc.

A crock pot uses about 80 watts on low setting and 150-200 watts on high - not much more than a bright reading light.

"Justify Freezers?" That's hysterical ms411.
