On Special Report Fox News 4/9/09, it was reported electricity produced by coal costs $.03 per KWHr.
Electricity produced by wind costs $.14 per KWHr.
Electricity produced by solar costs $.20 per KWHr.
For the month of May 2013, my wife and I used 1692 KWH times $.106 for $180 total bill for May.
If we had received our electricity from a wind source, our cost would have been $355.32 for the month of May
If we had received our electricity from a solar source, our cost would have been $456.84 for the month of May.
Why have we not seen these figures published?
How would these figures fit in your electric bill?
Are they irrelevant because the government will be paying this bill?
Do you want to share in taxes to pay bills like this?
Today, coal produces half of our electricity. If good judgment prevails, maybe we’ll be using coal and or natural gas.
