As the temperature drops, density increases & the constant will be higher than 1.08. For example, at 15' F, the value should be approximately 1.29. țThe double dagger pointed out that the "Cost Per KWH" was available at your local utility provider. I based the $0.09 on the cost in Pennsylvania. PVCstrip does not guarantee that cost savings in this example will be identical in every environment. Results will vary
