So you think having a two or three level cost-per-kWh tariff is complex enough for most people?

Just try to work this lot out at the EDF site .

(For the actual table of prices per kWh, click "Tempo tariff option," then "Prix." Scroll down for the standing charges based on the rating of the supply.)

Hey, I remember you saying Vermont had complex tariffs -- I see you weren't kidding!
I like the long hours available for lower cost-per-kWh on water heating though.

Our domestic tariffs here are still quite simple if you take power from the local supplier, but since deregulation it's now possible to have a contract with almost any supplier in the country, so we have the crazy situation where someone living in Scotland could be buying juice from London Electricity. Then the tariffs get very complicated.

Makes these domestic tariffs from ESB in Ireland seem very simple:

Standard

wow, Ireland let's you submit your own meter reading on line ! [Linked Image]
what is the exchange (dollars) of this .0952 per KW ?

I had contacted our local poco to be able to read a customers meter, they refered me to the meter department where i found out there was over a dozen styles in use, many of which could be altered via 'multipliers'....i still don't understand the document they sent, and i'm not quite sure they wish me to...

My local supplier here also allows on-line meter readings now, although they have a toll-free number to call them in as well which is what I use. I don't think my meter has been read by an "official" meter reader in over 2 years. Most of our meters are inside, which makes it harder, of course.

You might want to put on your shades before following this link -- their color scheme is a little garish! [Linked Image]

Re the ESB rates, Ireland changed to the new "Euro" currency at the beginning of the year. At the moment, 1 Euro = U.S. $0.932, so .0952 is approx. 8.9 U.S. cents before tax.

There's a handy currency converter here:
