power cost in your area
#1
Hello all,

 Just wondering more about how much is the powerwall builds and solar panels helping you all out.  The reason i am asking is for finding out if my price per kwh is low, med or high.  Currently for less than 1000 kwh of use it is 0.08673 and over 1000 kwh is .10781 before sales taxes as well. 

I am currently the lowest i have seen in a while with a 37 kwh avg use per day. 

thoughts?

Below are our current domestic rates here in Curaçao:

Equal and less than 250kWh (per month)
Nafl. 0.4730 = USD 0.262
Between 250 and 350kWh
Nafl. 0.5793 = USD 0.322
More than 350kWh
Nafl. 0.6235 = USD 0.346

Off peak AUD 0.15 per kWh
Shoulder AUD 0.24 per kWh
Peak AUD 0.54 per kWh
Daily access charge AUD 0.94

Australian dollars
Charges are based on time of day not volume

I have crazy high prices, they are one reason I am building my powerwall!

In my area in Central Florida, USA, most prices hover around $0.13/kWh. That's including the taxes and fees and such which should always be included when calculating, imho. Without the fees and such, the price is about $0.08/kWh.

Including taxes / fees I'm paying $.10/kWh here in NY. I only use ~13kWh/day so once I get it going the solar an powerwall will just be a hobby thing.

Wow that's a low rate! You really cant justify spending huge amounts on a powerwall.

Here's something to consider. I you pay for 20kWh/day @ $.13/kWh, that comes to $78/month. But that's every month. If you buy the powerwall components, you buy them only once. So the upfront cost may be a bit higher, even as much as $.30/kWh, but it will have paid for itself in the longrun after a few years. Maybe even a few months depending on your costs, usages, amount of sun on a daily basis.
This is how I'm looking at it from. My overall cost will be better than my current cost.

Yes we really need to keep a long term view when considering a DIY powerwall. I have downloaded my meter data for two years. I want to do a comparison and detailed costing when I have my system finally running. I would like to see at what point it pays for itself.
