No, what BP said was that replacing some gear with a Montage "will save me a ton on electricity". What I suggested is that even discontinuing using all that gear would have a minimal impact on his overall bill. I purposely inflated the power consumption, etc., when I did the calculation. Based on the 240 watt draw he actually reported, and typical 13 cents per KWh, even running 24 hours per day the cost would be about $22 per month. Completely eliminating that would hardly qualify as saving him "a ton on electricity" in comparison to $740 per month. I don't know what he paid for the B-stock Montage 8, but lets say it was extremely discounted to $2200. That would mean it would take 100 months of savings on his power bill (due to not using whatever was consuming 240 watts) before the Montage purchase would be offset.
I realize that there are good reasons one might update their synths, but the energy issue as presented is unrealistic. I'm in no way suggesting that cutting power consumption is a bad thing. We all should try to do so, the planet needs it. But if that's truly important to BP, and his electric bill is legitimately $740 per month, perhaps he should determine what else is being an energy pig.
