I fall into the category of a "multi-GPU cruncher." I have three, all in one room. Running all of them keeps my AC busier than the proverbial one-legged man at an a** kicking contest. My current service rate still holds at around $0.135 per kWh. Even so, I have gotten statements from my provider which show as much as$30 USD higher than normal. I had cut back considerably. Sometimes, I run two, and others only one. I intend to part with the third which I do not use at all now. A person must adapt.
