My new electric power provider Tibber has an API of consumption and prices for each hour. This shows how it varies through a day, for each day from July 25th to February 9th.
All power meters in Norway are to be replaced by 01.01.2019. The new meters will report consumption every 15 minutes. Consumers will be charged based on the cost per kWh per hour.
I parsed the data in Visual Studio and created a new chart for each day. Combined to a GIF using gifmaker.me. Blue line shows the price, red line the daily average price and a "high" and "low" line (average + and - a st.dev)
The shuttle program cost $57,090 per kg to deliver payload to orbit. SpaceX's upcoming rocket, BFR, will drop that price to $47 per kilogram. We are at the dawn of a new era in terms of what is possible in space.
57,234 rubber ducks being dumped into the Chicago River at the Windy City Rubber Ducky Derby. Each duck cost $5 and whoever's duck crosses the finish line first wins a new car, with all proceeds benefiting the Special Olympics.
Why are college tuitions rising so fast? A common idea is that cuts in state funding cause schools to raise prices. Two studies question this claim, though, finding that for every $100 cut in student subsidies, tuitions rise only $5-25. This suggests other factors are fueling rapidly rising costs.
Why does it cost $30,093 just to give birth in America? The US is the most expensive nation in the world in which to have a baby - and it may factor into thousands of bankruptcies each year.
