This might shock you - electricity is cheap in SD and Wyoming


If you think you're paying a lot for electricity - think again. A new report shows South Dakota is one of the best places to live when it comes to the cost of electricity.

According to Personal Finance Network "Wallet - Hub," South Dakota ranks 10th lowest across the country when it comes to the price of power. The state is in the middle of the pack when it comes to the amount of electricity used, ranking 29th out of 50.

Cindy Boume at the Lazy-U Motel says ... like most homes and businesses, power bills go toward heating and cooling.

"It's actually more expensive for us in the wintertime with the heat because we heat with electricity," Cindy Bourne of the Lazy-U Motel, said. "And so in the summertime, especially in summers like this, it's so nice outside that people aren't using the air conditioners as much."

Wyoming ranked even lower than South Dakota in terms of energy costs, having the seventh cheapest rate in the country.
