Not sure where you’re finding those numbers but I believe they are not accurate.


Heck, here in Lincoln, Nebraska, our rates are 8.01c per kWh in the summer and 5.48c in the winter.

Maybe that’s one reason why an as-yet-unnamed entity is putting a massive datacenter here in the next couple of years. Dangit I wish I knew who it was as I want to apply there once it gets going.
