Good grief! We're paying 48 cents per KWH - and that's WITH a 14KW solar system on our roof. Our house isn't huge, but it's bigger than average (4300 square feet) so we're always over what SDG&E says is the median usage for any given time of the year. LED lighting and energy star appliances are all we have. Can't wait to move out of this state.SeilerBird said:Electricity is 11 cents per kilowatt hour.

I can remember it was around 25 cents per KWH in Payson, AZ when I stayed at the Oxbow RV park for a month, around a year ago. I used up around $60.00 bucks worth in a month, but that includes charging my electric motorcycle and running my large tower heater every night. They charge for the meter readings and then a ten dollar "administration fee" is added to that, so it's really a bit more than 25 cents per KWH. Just expect it to cost around $500.00 per month there in reality.Kevin Means said:I can't think of a single RV park near us (San Diego) that charges a separate fee for power, but then again, there aren't very many RV parks in San Diego. I know many of the month-to-month parks in Yuma charge separately for electricity. Don't know what the rates are.
When I mentioned that I was running my A/C all day long in Florida and my electric bill was $60 per month I had a few people who didn't believe me. Now I see why. I have moved to a shadier spot with a more efficient A/C and it is only run a few hours per day so now it is about $50 per month.Kevin Means said:Good grief!

I believe it. SDG&E has the highest rates in the country. When we were getting solar installed a couple years ago, in a futile attempt to get into a lower tier, the salesman said SDG&E's rates were twice that of Riverside county, which is just north of us - and ours have gone up since then.garyb1st said:We're in California and our electric bill is no where near as much as Kevs. Then again we sweat a lot.
