Hey guys, this stuff is simple addition and multiplication with a
little division thrown in.
Figure a year as 8000 hours.
so penny a kWh gives you $80/yr revenue.
If you pay off the investment in ten years that means $80/year x10
years is $800. That's the amount you can spend per kW if you want
power at penny a kWh.
Everyone follow this?
