Hello,

Google searches indicated the average per kW-hr rates for residential electricity in the three counties are around 10.22 cents per kW-hr.

Does this seem accurate? I'd just like to know if there are other charges per kW-hr that aren't being included. (Not concerned with the base connection charges).

I'd be interested in knowing a standard same charge all day and night type scheme and not an Off-Peak / On-Peak scheme.

Reason: We work from home, run treadmills while we work and also have an electric car we'll be charging. This causes our electricity usage to be moderately high (running A/C during the summer while we work for example).

I'm in Chapel Hill. My electric bill was $222 for last month, 5 bdrm older ranch house, and we have a Nissan Leaf that gets charged overnight and during the day (I put some miles on that sucker and work from home). We do have on-Peak/off-Peak. Our avg daily Kwh usage was 66 and average daily cost was $7.15, so that comes out to $10.83.

From looking at your posting history, you're considering a wide range of places to relocate. One of those places is/was Phoenix. Having lived in Phoenix metro for 25+ years before moving to the triangle in 2012, I can assure you that electric was cheaper in Phoenix (roughly 8 cents kph) nearly all of our basic costs are higher here than Phoenix.

If you're primary concern is costs, , look at Phoenix long before Raleigh.

We are in Chapel Hill (Orange County) in a 4 BR two-story home with an unfinished third floor. Our latest bill which essentially covered the month of September was $116.52 ($108.07 residential service, $.83 renewable energy rider, and $7.52 sales tax). This represented a total of 1058 kWh (36 kWh per day for a cost of $3.73 per day). Our heat/oven/stove are gas. I am home most days. Hope that helps!

ETA: Our gas bill for the same time period was $18.31 which includes a $10 basic facilities charge, 8 Therms at $.888, and $1.20 sales tax (7%).

Of course September is one of the cheapest months without much air conditioning or heat being used.

You can see statewide averages for retail customers at https://www.eia.gov/electricity/state/. NC is roughly in the middle. Highest prices are California, the northeast, Alaska and Hawaii. Lowest (of course) is Washington state with so much hydro.
