woodgeek, thanks, and I think I overlooked the transportation/delivery charge. Is that yet to be added to the 10 cents for wind power? I pay about 11.5 cents for electricity and 6 cents for delivery. When the lines start coming down in an ice storm I understand why the delivery charge is so high. Jersey Central Power and Light (returned to this name, but it is really "First Energy" and I forget what it was before going back to JCP&L is about 50/50 coal and nuclear, so they too have a lot of nuclear capacity that does what when it isn't generating power? Maybe they just "pull the rods" back and slow down the reaction. I have no idea what heating oil cost, but I thought it was down near $2 a gallon when regular gas was selling for about $1.50 (gee I forget already how low it recently got, it is in the $1.70+ range now for gas). I last had oil heat in 1974. I had natural gas heat in Ohio and then back in NJ 1974-1989. Since I have been on a heat pump, and a geothermal since 1993...one of my better decisions.
