Hi,
Not sure just where you are, but "wow" 4.26 for propane is High !!  If you use GMP, they have switched to Canadian Hydro and Seabrook NH to replace Vermont Yankee power, but I now notice that Vermont Yankee is now re-fueling. So may want to look into things, they seem to have changed a bit.

I have propane but at $4.26/gal. the cost per btu is about the same as electric, not to mention the vent required. I’m thinking initial install costs are higher for propane and I don’t expect to use it very often. Please correct me if I’m thinking wrong.

No real experience with it, but I always thought gas or propane would make a more efficient fuel for tankless systems than electric.  Are either an option?

Anyone have experience with tankless water heaters? I am having a solar hot water system installed and my 80 gallon off-peak electric heater is probably a little overkill for backup. The 25 cent per day meter charge will eat up any savings that I gain from off-peak since most of my energy will now come from the sun. I also have a plan to re-use the old tank as heat storage for the wood boiler. So I was thinking that an electric tankless heater would be the simplest and most efficient backup system.
