In TX my rate is $0.114 and that is slightly above market since I go with wind company. We still have people here complaining about power companies post deregulation ripping them off. At $0.24, there would be serious complaints.
How could public ever be cheaper? Individually metered lines,one or two per site,no leverage with sponsoring business' usage + equipment depreciation + return on sales.
Public can be cheaper. Some places are $1/hr w/30 amp L2 EVSEs.

The PU code specifically requires that baseline quanties fall between 50 and 60 percent of average use for basic-electric customers in both the summer and winter and for all-electric and gas customer in the summer. The PU code also requires that baseline quantities fall between 60 to 70 percent of average use for all-electric and gas customers in the winter. PG&E's baseline summer season is April 1 - October 31 for gas and May 1 - October 31 for electric. PG&E's winter baseline season is November 1 - March 31 for gas and November 1 - April 30 for electric.
What's my current baseline (100%)? 10.1 kWh/day because it's "summer" (I'm in area X, code B) or 303 kWh/month, assuming 30 billing days. So, if I were on E-1 every kWh from ~397 kWh to 606 kWh costs me 27.5 cents. Each kWh beyond 606 costs me 33.5 cents.
I'm E-6 though. See page 2 of http://www.pge.com/tariffs/tm2/pdf/ELEC_SCHEDS_E-6.pdf

It is easier for me to pull into my garage and plug in any time I return home, and in less than an hours I am usually ready to go again. I only go to 100% once each week or so, usually just 80%.
I hear you. There's the whole time, value, money thing. As someone reminded me, you can always make more $ but time that's spent/gone, you can never get back.
