Recently, the electric company announced that electricity rates would be lowered.
UPDATE: Rates are lower again now (October, 2015, with the reduction in VAT)
Here's the new, lower rate for those with a standard electric meter: 53.33 agurot per kwh (including ma'am/VAT).
Please use this new rate when you calculate your operating costs for your lights and appliances.
I wrote a long post about Electric Bills back in November, look it over, as it will help you find ways to lower your bills!
And if you simply want to know approximately how much your appliances are costing you to run, check out the Electricity Cost Calculator my "tech-guy" son made! It's been updated to reflect the new, lower rate.
