Here in Weston, CT our 'Eversource' electric provider charges a $.219/kWh residential rate. This the total of all electric charges - generation, transmission, delivery etc. - the total cost delivered to my meter.
I charged the car and noted the meter kWh at start and end. I made sure there was negligible other house usage during this daylight period. With a 24A circuit on a HPWC giving an indicated 18mph charge rate, the car attained 134 miles of charge in 459 minutes using 50kWh.
This equates to $.0817/mile charge cost, totaling $10.95 for the session. Assuming no driving efficiency losses, if the car gets 100mpg, the cost compared to a gallon of gas would be $8.17/gallon.
I'm moving to, where? Bighorn? Wyoming?
