The rate used in the article is 10 cents per kWh. I checked on www.eia.doe.gov
, their latest data is from 2009, and it says the average rate was 11.5 cents per kWh. I also looked at my latest electricity bill, I was charged 8.5 cents per kWh last month. Where are you getting 30 cents per kWh from?
