Rates are quite complex for some utilities. For PG&E in Northern California:
1. Baseline rate is $0.1323/KWh.
2. Based rate allowance is 19.3KWh per day from Nov 1st to Jun 19th. Summer baseline allowance is 10.3KWh per day from Jun 20th to Oct 30th for area X, a strip of land from Humble County in the north to Santa Barbara in the south about 5 miles from the Pacific and 50 miles wide.
3. 100%-130% is $0.1504/KWh. In winter time this overs the next 5.79KWh usage above baseline.
4. 130%-200% is $0.30025/KWh. This tranlates to the next 13.51KWh of usage.
5. 200%+ is $0.34025/KWh.
So if the household usage is already in 200% of baseline and above, that 72KWh per month is more like $24 vs $7/month cited above.
