for instance I live in north louisiana my 2021 average is 12.306 cents/kWH
jan was the low of 11.435
nov was the high of 13.700
dec was 7.276 which i am sure was a mistake but i counted it anyway
Do you pay different rates in tiers or blocks? I believe our rate is one amount for the first so many KWH, then a different rate in the next block. I’ll have to look it up. I might get billed the higher rate for the whole month once it goes over the first KWH block? Maybe that’s how it is for you, which is why the one month it was low?

I just shredded last months bill. This is probably the worst month for solar output, and I still produced more than I used. Since I put solar on the roof I never get into the higher blocks.

It looks like JCP&L has two rates. The first 600KWH at one rate, and over 600KWH at another rate. Those two rates are also divided into summer and winter rates. So four rates altogether. They also have an optional time of day billing. I don't know when they started that. Maybe when they switched to smart meters? There is also water heater rates and heat pump rates. It's odd that the winter rate is higher than the over 600KWH summer rate? I guess they have to make up for less usage during the winter?

Looking at my KWH used chart and a billing statement, they don't line up? I'm not sure what they did? Maybe the one shows what I used in total, but doesn't show the amount subtracted from solar production? Dividing the numbers on the left chart, it averages around .07 KWH. The picture on the right still shows a $85 credit, while on the left it shows how much was billed for the month.
