Fuel Cost Comparison

The chart below allows you to compare energy costs based on each fuel's rate per Kilowatt, Gallon or Therm. If you look at the chart going from left to right - we compare fuel costs based on the off-peak rate.

Example: if your off-peak rate is 3.5 cents/kWh, any time you pay more than $0.56/Gal. for LP, $0.85/Gal. for using 90+ furnace, $0.81/Gal. for fuel oil or $0.92/Therm; electric heat is more economical.

Compare your electric rate to your current costs of gas and oil. You may be surprised at what you find.
