Average Monthly Usage vs Price per kWh:
500 kWh = 10.4¢
1000 kWh = 9.60¢
2000 kWh = 9.20¢
In deregulated areas, most of us pay a flat rate plus a monthly service fee. Unfortunately, deregulation has driven prices up and turned ordinary consumers into energy speculators (by forcing folks into buying long-term rate plans if they want a decent rate.)
I'm currently paying $0.134/kWh, and my contract is up in September. I may switch early and pay the $200 fee to escape my contract.
