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)
TIL Dwight D. Eisenhower said "The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. It is two electric power plants...It is two fine, fully equipped hospitals...We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people."
The cost of producing solar power is rapidly declining: it now costs $50 to produce one megawatt-hour of solar power. Coal, on the other hand, costs $102 per megawatt-hour to produce. This recent change could be a sign that the world is on the verge of an energy revolution.
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.
