Does this $2239 price include the 8 drives?

WOW!!!  Your electricity is EX..PEN...SIVE!  Assuming my math is right,
250W is 1kWh every 4 hours, that that means 6kWh/day * 365 days/year ==
2190 kWh/year.  To cost $1600 to operate you're paying $0.73/kWh!?! I...
don't think so.  So either your math is wrong or mine is.  By my math at
15c/kWh (which is MUCH more that I pay here in Georgia over the course of
the year), this would cost $328.50/year to operate.
