That is 20% of our costs....yeah, I'd like that part.
You can find it for 10c a KWH easy in the midwest all day
Really the only reason not to move to cali if you're a grower and in the midwest is power
So THAT'S why they're all moving to Colorado!
Yea I'm not sure why most midwesterners seem to pick colorado over cali
Been that way for at least a decade. Well over half of the stoners I know who've moved to medical/rec states have went to colorado.
Lots of people goin to school out there. I don't know a single person that went to cali for school
Having seen both, California is definitely where they should go; Colorado is doing fine without them.
Second would be hydro one [ontario ]at 26c...
You want high power costs? Check out Hawaii!
I'm hearing good things about Capetown.
if i lived in that heavenly place i'd worry not..the sun is your friend
and they do not have to worry about freezing to death
... Still need light to veg; Gaslight timing and all.
Some drawback, lol

Forgot to mention; I grew both of the above examples with just 900W.
True statement. I pay .08 cents per kwh no tiering. Run 2000 watts in my flower room and 400 watts in veg with all fans and a 5000 btu ac. Plus I have my hot water waher dryer and swamp cooler in the living room. Just got my bill for 30 days. It's 130 dollars lol. Love it!
I pay .08 cents per kwh. Sorry to hear your troubles. I'm in the Midwest but have experience with pg&e from my travels. They are thieves!
Im also under hydro one but that 25c/kwh is our peak time rate. The mid peak is about 15c/kwh and the off peak about 9c/kwh. Offpeak happens to be during the nighttime 7pm-7am so I made the obvious choice to run the equipment at night.
Luckily the 12 hour period for off peak fits the flowering 12on/12off perfect. You have to eat a few hours of the mid peak rate in veg light hour cycles.
Best way to win is going for explosive growth in veg and stay in the sweet spot flowerring hours imo, ie if youre not doing this to make any money and just prefer your own flowers.
I'm lucky to be in Oregon where you can have four plants and the electricity is cheap.
Here's a chart of electrical costs. Sorry if it's already been posted.
I wouldn't be growing indoors if I lived in Hawaii.
And yet people do...
The price of the electricity no doubt has a large impact on running costs, but the equipment you're using could also be using more electricity than it needs to.
