    Hell, at those rates, you can heat your house with electricity. Those are 1950's rates around here.

    Wow -
    I've been wanting to tell everyone about my electricity savings since I started heating with a pellet stove. Last Winter, when we heated exclusively with oil, our electric bill averaged $125.00/ month. This year we only run the oil furnace to heat our hot water... our average monthly bill - wait for it - $90.00!! Happy as a pig in... :)

    Using two pellets stoves and no fuel oil or propane at all for heating, My kw usage is now 1047 for January 10,11,12..nearly the same as before pellet stoves. I'm using the stoves 24/7. I have propane for cooking,heating backup, and electric hot water,and clothes dryer. So my status: no increase in electric. I suspect the big blower on the oil furnace ate a lot of kw's even though it ran much less..

    If you go the main Hearth page & type "Electrical costs for pellet stoves" there is a very good report. He came out with $12/month, but evrybody's rate is different. Magnum blog,
    also has the info on how to figure your consumption cots. If you can not find it , let me know
    & I will get the info to you. Hope this helps.
