Costs of Electricity

Brian from Papakura

Boy are we paying for power here in NZ. Just checked my latest statement, $0.3123/kWh. I was just watching Ecotricity on You Tube and the presenter was going over the costs of running her EV in the USA. She pays more for her electricity as it comes from renewable sources in the US.
