    We are lucky up here in Ontario, currently paying 5.5cents/kwhr. :p

    It still doesn't make up for the fact that just about everything costs more up here, not to mention our hefty taxes. :-/ But heck we'll take whatever we can get :lol:

    Hey Gunner, don't forget to add in our delivery charges, debt reduction charges, etc.

    The cost per kWh is like only half the bill.

    so what do you pay per KW-hr when you take the total bill and divide it by the KW-hrs consumed?

    Thr reason I ask is because although we here in Ohio don't have much electricity generated by cheaper hydro, the actual generation cost is about 4.9 cents/Kw-hr here in the Dayton, Ohio area. Add in all the other fees (transmission cost, tax, etc) and it's about 10 cents/Kw-hr which isn't too bad.....

    Actually, the General Assembly stepped in and cut a deal with BGE to keep the rate hike at 15% for now. This also includes a monthly surcharge of a few bucks for the next ten years for all rate payers. BGE will then increase the rates incrementally. I expext another hike come May of this year.
