Default Power costs here in the Land of the Not-quite-right

Just move the decimal (comma as seen in most parts of the world) one place
to the right, and you are close enough to the amount in cents US. Compare
your bill for a given amount of KwH.

But you're out there in the middle of the Caribbean... Everything costs
more in the middle of nowhere.

Sure seems that way. But no property tax since I'm 'homesteaded'.

Energy costs here in England are probably twice or three times US...
Domestic heating bills whether oil, gas, solid fuel or electricity, work
out much the same in the long run - though of questionable legality. And
the taxes!

I don't know about vehicle fuels, as I don't run a car nowadays.

Severe hardship for many of us this winter, I fear.

The irony here is that the basic tariff for my 490kwh is $24.72. They
add a 'compra de energia' (energy purchase, whatever that is) of 17.79
and the 'compra de combustible' (fuel purchase) of 71.48.

We get our fuel from Hugo which is probably a tenuous situation for the
long-term future. A plan is afoot to convert to natural gas - not sure
where it would come from. There's a line on the bill now that says
"With VIA VERDE your bill would be $99.69, a savings of $14.30".

Cool, we're going GREEN! But at the same time the greenies are blocking
construction of the new gas pipeline to be dug along the existing
right-of-way. Go figure.
