Weekly cost to fold = 19.32kWh x $0.087333 = $1.68 per week.
I believe that you only calculated for 7 hours of folding - $0.085 x 0.115Watts = $0.0097 per hour x 7 = $0.0679, not $6.79.
Edit: Damn, ninja'd
Yup, that makes sense.
Since we are folding for the team, we should at least get beaver bobble heads each !. I've seen them for $5.50 each
