36KWH per day, or ~1MWH per month. Rate is $0.10/KWH.

Not looking for an energy code calculation, as I don't have the details about the construction. Just looking at feasibility. It is essentially free power, as I would be using it anyway.

Save you money in the winter
Cost you money in the summer
There are different rates. . . Like my heater is gas my AC runs off the power grid.
No AC, but wouldn't need it. Since my place is not very well insulated to the ground, it stays ~60's while it is 90's outside. Great in the summer, cold as Skyrim in the winter. As I said in the first post, my winter bills are ~$100, summer is $20.

Of course airflow and how well your house is insulated and sealed will make a difference. Just my expierence.
Thanks, that is basically what I want to hear from people and their experience.Edited by starliner - 10/19/17 at 11:00pm
