V Energy Cost Comparisons FAQs Where do the energy costs quoted in the gas vs electric charts come from?


In order to avoid any regional or seasonal bias, the 2015 national average commercial prices for natural gas and electricity were used as published in the Monthly Energy Review by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) — Energy Information Administration.


How is energy usage calculated?


In the gas versus electric annual operating cost comparisons used here and throughout the Catalog, every effort was made to identify comparable gas and electric equipment. Usage calculations are based on the equipment models operating at their rated hourly load. Your usage may be higher or lower. Days of operation are calculated using 360 days per year.
