WOW! That really is bad. I'm in NB Canada and we pay $0.116 per KW. But I put a solar array in, so after the array is paid back from home use in about 12 years, I'm driving for free. Sounds like solar would be a great option in your state, even if for just powering your home.My latest electric bill arrived today, and I am now paying $.357 kWh. That's the all-in cost. I took the bill total and divided my total kWh used.
I'm averaging 2.1 miles per kWh. / $.357 per 2.1 miles or $.17 per 1 mile.
My Silverado, which I traded in for the Lightning, was averaging 18 miles per gallon. Gas prices are around $3.02 in my area.
Here is how the two compare to drive 18 miles:
I guess it's a good thing the Lightning doesn't run on eggs.
- Silverado = $3.02
- Lightning = $3.06
