It is easy to see why there is so much interest in alternative energy sources such as low energy nuclear reaction (LENR). Electricity rates in the United States just hit an all-time high according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The average cost of a kilowatt hour of electricity in the USA in October was 13.2¢ that is the highest it price on record. If that wasn’t bad enough the price is continuing to go up. The price increased every month in 2013.
Electricity costs in the United States have actually been going up for quite some time. In fact the cost of electricity in the US has risen by around 42% since 2003. The Washington Post predicts that electricity costs will increase by 21% in the next 10 years and 51% in the next 20 years.
These figures indicate that the present electricity supply system in the United States is both costly and inefficient. Alternative sources of energy are desperately needed now.
