Most interesting, though, is that the there’s very little correlation between the fuel that a country uses for power and electric rates. Australia, like the United States, is heavily coal-based. Portugal gets a huge amount of power from wind and solar. Spain famously has invested heavily in solar power. Canada uses primarily hydropower. France, with rates about twice those of the United States, uses nuclear power.
It remains to be seen how accurate the data is. Here are figures from [eurostat] (in euro cent) and figures are vastly different.
