Portugal has made large strides in converting to renewable energy, but it ain't cheap.

Portuguese were already paying 2X the amount that US citizens pay for electricity, and the cost increased an additional 15% (according to the article). And, of course, the US is much larger and undoubtedly uses more electricity per capita.

Interesting read nonetheless.
