Just how much do the charge you per KWH up there?
After adding on all the 'carrying charges' & etc. our cost is 21 cents per KWH.
Luckily, we are 10deg F south of you, and using a mini-split for electric heat,
does not cost us an arm&leg. For most of the winter, it's about $2 a day.
It also costs $2 a day to 'oil' heat our hot water.
It burns oil for about 30 minutes on most days.
We only use the oil for heating the house if it gets down under 10F for a few hours.
