    Since I shutdown my tank 2 weeks ago, I have saved $45 in power! Going to wait for a full month of electric bills to really see the actual cost.

    Before I switched to LEDs my power bill used to be $400-$500 every month (I was paying 50cents/kWh because I was in the top tier because I used so much). Now it is between $80-$100 a month and I pay 18cents/kWh. I figure the 3 tanks I have running now take up about $60/month to run.
