Enter the kilowatt hours used in the form that applies to your service, either normal "Residential" or "All Electric" residential. The form will calculate the price you pay for those Kilowatt Hours in Albemarle, NC. I've checked the "All Electric Service Calculator" form with a recent electric bill and it works fine.

To understand the Kilowatt Hours used each month, I'm interested in heating degree days.

I am using Weather Underground as my source for heating degree days in Albemarle. I have used the Custom tab to find the heating degree days for each billing period below. January the 5th ( 46 heating degrees) is included in both heating degree calculations. This is not a precise calculation.
