Renewable Electricity options in Massachusetts

We have two options: 2.4 additional per kWh for the Green Start program, or 3.8 for the Mass Wind program.

We are paying (with NStar) 19.2 / kWh already. And that price is likely to go up by as much as 37% this winter.

On Forest (our new Leaf) it cost us 5.1 / mile which is less than a Prius - at 6.4 / mile at the current local $3.199 price for gas @ 50MPG.

I charged Forest last night - 16.17kWh and drove 68.5 miles = 4.236 miles / kWh = 142MPGe. At our current electricity rate plus the Green Start cost, that makes it ~$7.279 / gallon equivalent. Again that is 5.1 / mile.

It makes a solar PV system look even better!
Sincerely, Neil
