Due to rising retail power cost my electricity per KWH went up 38% in July, I fear most people had similar rises. I am going to cross over to Amber energy and just pay fluctuation wholesale energy cost that should be lower. I am hoping to just schedule my crunching to when electricity cost are at there lowest price. I was wondering if anyone else has done something similar or if there is away to get live energy cost and develop some script or alert to crunch at specific times.

Sadly I've just reduced my crunching. Power bill is killing me.  :thumbdown:


I too have decided to crunch during the day only. I will kill off all my PCs overnight.

Current bill is $485, which is a bit for two people (Mum and myself). Also had air conditioning running for a fair bit during the day. Will cut back on that over the coming (hopefully cooler) months!
