I;ve just signed a contract. 15.5 eurocents/kWh (Plus VAT) until 220 kWh/month and 31 eurocents/kWh beyond that. But I am mostly under the 220 limit with two Linux boxes running 24/7. No AC.

Your the expert,compared to most crunchers,but would it be cost effective to replace your ( I can hardly say it ! ) erm older power hungry cards with newer more electrically efficient ones.
Basically getting rid of the 580s and 295s and replacing them with 6XX series or when they are finally abundant ,7XX series cards.
I know it would cost a bit , but would probably pay for itself with reduced electricity bills.

Just a thought, I would crap myself if I got bills like yours !!!! :)
