Default How much do you pay per kw/h?

Well instead of building a new folding rig I will just use my rig for folding right now, I am looking at purchasing some gpus and wondering how much people pay per kw/h since my dad isn't sure. This way when my power bill comes he won't be able to blame me:D

Per month, my last bill:
5.7 C/KWH for the first 1200
6.6 C/KWH afterwards

However it's changed recently for Toronto Hydro
Electricity Price | Toronto Hydro Electric System

Going up 0.1 cents/KWH.

You should check what Hydro company you're with and look on their website for more details.

Damn Time-of-Use billing of Toronto Hydro.

Highest Price (On-Peak)
9.3 cents/kWh
Mid Price (Mid-Peak)
8.0 cents/kWh
Lowest Price (Off-Peak)
4.4 cents/kWh
Kind of neat though to be able to see all these wonderful graphs on the Toronto Hydro site though. Really puts how much power you use and at what times into perspective. Even in the middle of the night, our house draws around 0.700kWh. And not much is running at night, mainly idle power, though my server/folding PC runs and a few lights. Still seems on the high-side though, but at the same time I can't be arsed to unplug everything at night.

Monthly though, doesn't seem too bad. Obviously the summer is high due to the AC.
