My cents per kWh costs for the past 12 months have been (under Dominion Virginia Power's Dual-Meter Schedule EV Time of Use plan):

7.187 (Jan)
7.024 (Feb)
6.814 (Mar)
6.754 (Apr)
6.644 (May)
6.710 (Jun)
6.177 (Jul)
6.256 (Aug)
6.725 (Sep)
5.812 (Oct)
6.014 (Nov)
6.099 (Dec)

Nope, nothing like 2 cents, to be sure but yep, those are some sweet numbers allowing me my 1,500 mi for $25 statistic. :) Recently, I've been paying more because of the Blink Vampire power draw 24/7, 5-7 kWh in the Peak range per month.

It amazes me how ones untility bill could be so complicating. I live in rual Oklahoma. In ok we enjoy very reasonable energy rates on cng, electricity, petrol except propane seems to be high. My power provider is a co-op running 6.3 cents and 8.2 june-sept. Rates apply 24/7. I think Tulsa and Okc are a bit higher, but well below larger city rates.

I haven't read/re-read this thread carefully, but if you want to see insanity, look at the statement at https://docs.google.com/open?id=0B1eSSO ... ER2bEtqcGs" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; posted by madbrain at http://www.mynissanleaf.com/viewtopic.p ... 77#p235977" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;.

That statement is fricking in insane compared to what I get from the same (ripoff) utility, except that I have no solar and therefore no net metering.

Try putting in your usage into http://www.pge.com/myhome/myaccount/charges/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; w/a 95136 zip code (not where I live, but it's the same as where I live) w/no for CARE (for low income people) and comparing your costs vs. PG&E.

I was on a non-TOU plan (E1) but more recently switched a TOU-based one (E6-Smart).

Don't get me started on reading Power Utility Bills. I have it down to a science. Schedule EV, Schedule A, Schedule C1, C2, etc, sales tax, corporation tax, county tax. Every month I input my recorded usage into a spreadsheet and out pops the portion of my bill just for the LEAF and what remains for the household. When there's a conflict, back to the riders I go to see what changes when it changes. Hard core.
