From 0600 yesterday til 0600 this today ,the KAA2 used 67 # of UAE's finest. The math reveals that would equate to $22.27 worth of #2 fuel oil. In coal cost it is $5.69. If the same type temperatures continue for one week the bill would be $155.89 for oil and $39.83 for coal. That comes out to $116.06 savings per week under these temperature conditions.It is almost like having a green robotic employee in the basement that makes me money around the clock with no breaks or sick days. I greatly appreciate my Keystoker and the hard working Pennsylvania folks that dig and process the fuel to make it perform. Mike
