You must have Smart meters, to allow for time of day charge.

'Smart meters' have been 'replacements' by our POCOs for a while. Personally, I still have a 'dumb' meter at my house.

I just got my bill

Customer Charge $5.90
Storm Charge $1.25
Franchise charge $7.16
Tax $5.97

Fuel Charge
First 1000 kwh $.038570
over 1000 kwh $.048570

Non-Fuel
First 1000 kwh $.046990
over 1000 kwh $.056990


Bottom line 2327 kwh costs $245.91 or 10.57 cents/kwh

Just for gee whiz info that is equal to 13.54a @ 240v 24/7.

At a dime a kwh it will certainly take a long time to pay back $8 a watt solar collectors when my solar contractor says I can only count on 5-6 hours a day at the rated output.
That is something like 33 years before the rebates.

Greg:
Use my rates and that 2327 KWHr would cost $ 485.00 Plus, customer chg, and taxes based on our summer rates. Rough number of .21 censt a KWHr.

That cuts your payback roughly to 16+ years w/o rebates.

My basic is - 0.0811X15KWH

Not so bad- I have had the AC running and the pool heater too. $6.08 for the month.

I got no complaints.

Leland:
Are you kidding? $36 for a month with pool & AC?

Our (NJ) poco bills used to have a lot of 'items', but...there all condensed into the numbers above, excluding tax and a BGS Recon Chg/Credit.

De-regulation would allow energy purchase from other suppliers (generation), but I wonder if it's worth the hassles.

BTW:
Nice that you're back & posting
