Coal boiler, well pump, 1 fridge, 1 freezer, and misc. electronics. Two adults.
Stove, oven, and dryer use propane for heat.
I have PP&L. My rates are in the $90 range with 2 adults and two kids and all of the extra's. I average 42kwh per month Nov, Dec, Jan.
The previous owners & builders of my home elected to go with a plan in 1988 which enables lower electric rates which I still carry toady which included install of stored heating unit in way of a 500gal electric Hyrdokentic system along with 80gal hot water domestic tank. I cannot exceed 1kwh between 7a & 5p, mon-fri or else will be charged a demand about $6.50, max of 4 demands per mo. The Hydrokentic has only been energized maybe 10x since I started using coal in 2003. It works well. BUT NOT BETTER THAN COAL! It's been a fabulous value so far for us.
