I've updated the spreadsheet that I created to compare PG&E electric rate plans and usage scenarios with the rates effective August 1, 2014. It is on Google Drive here.

Well said Dr Manny. People wont change unless they are forced to. I wondered why CA electric was so expensive and it makes sense that it is because your state has spent so much money on alternative energy.

I only pay $.11/kwh in Ithaca NY.

Is NY municipal owned or regulated public business?
Municipal you pay for infrastructure once, investor owned you pay a rate of return indefinitely.
Electric has long been expensive in CA. Very poor planning IMO and drives business out.

I am on SCE
I have no special rates or anything since we are in a rental and hope to move out soon.

month driven charger price price/mile
jun 1472 miles 431 kWh $108 $0.073/mile
jul 1477 miles 422 kWh $106 $0.072/mile
aug 1325 miles 388 kWh $91 $0.069/mile

In august I installed 1 solar panel with a micro inverter to offset the house load.
That way we didn't go as deep in tier4 as normal which helped to get the overal
cost per kWh down.

Dusting off an old thread - SDGE rates are set to change. As a solar generator I've been on time of use for over 10 years. But starting in December TOU rates are changing from a 11am to 6pm peak, to a 4pm to 9pm peak. Also, TOU will be year-round and 7 days a week. No relaxed rates for winter or weekends. This means I'll be generating at lower rates than when I typically use power, and have a huge impact on my bill.

I have the option of going back to the tier structure until my 20 years are up, or an EV TOU schedule. Anyone have some insight here?

Tony, any chance of communicating with the Rav4 BMS / CANBUS system to create an interface with an inverter (substitute Rav4 battery for solar panels)? Where is the best place to start researching the data communication standards for the Rav?

I think you can sign up for EV-TOU2 until December and it would give you peak from 12-6pm. You'd be grandfathered into that rate for 5 years.

That's only for Net Metering 2.0 customers (less than 5 years). Since I'm already on TOU for more than 5 years, they require me to switch to the new structure. The EV TOU structure is changing in December also.

I couldn't respond to this until now. I have had net metering 1.0 for 2 years (since January 2015) and I received the a letter that my plan is grandfathered in until January 2020. I also have net metering 2.0 in a different house and signed up for it in September 2017 and got a letter saying that it's grandfathered in until September 2022.
