    I get this: 381 kWh/52.19 = 7.3 cents

    Not counting the ten cent credit.

    your charges don't add up to 52.19, they didn't list the generation charges, that is what varies between day and night.

    sorry i didn't list both. but ty you guys maybe with the some corrections i'll get to know how to do this. so far it looks easy. just multiply kwh into the total price?
    btw my bill hasn't been this low since 2007, after that rates doubled. CT.sucks.

    You're right, I did a quick look and it didn't seem right, I notice that there were charges for transmission and distribution, but not for generation.

    That's expensive, 22 cents per KWH, my bill in florida is around 100 dollars per megawatt, yours is 220 per megawatt hour

    I see your Reagan quote. This year in CT. "the tax me state" only people single or couples making below $10,000 will get fuel assistants. I get $8532 from S.S.
    CT. pays zero, only feds pay this year. As stated in my fuel award, this is not an entitlement program. I'm one of Mitt's 47%'er. LOL.

    One thing I can say about Reagan. He did have compassion.

    Does add up if you take off basic service and late pmt

    All, but two of the charges are per kW·h. I.e. (84.16-15.85-2.44)/381 is $0.172887/kW·h or 17.2887¢/kW·h. This has round off error as the amount has been rounded to cents. If you add up the individual rates you should get similar, but the exact value. Use this value to check your power bill.

    When I went back and added the rates I got $0.172883/kW·h.

    If all units are the same you can add them. For example all KPIs must be converted to common unit i.e. $/a. I.e. you may need to amortise cost first so it can be added to others of the same unit.

    See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dimensional_analysis
