I am thinking of relocating to the Phelan / Oak Hills area in SB county , but am concerned about the cost of electricity .

Here in Texas we have one flat rate with no taxes other than $4 on my bill . We use 4,000 KWH for a total delivered cost of $440 . My concern is the tier system and high taxes in California.

If we have a smaller home and use less A/C , I assume my usage could down to 2,000 kwh . Does anyone have an idea what the cost of electricity is after taxes are added ?

You can stay cool with evaporative cooling up there in the bone-dry high desert.

SCE - Understanding Tiered Rates

I believe Tier 1 is 300kWh per month in my case (1BR apartment.) Not sure when Tier 5 kicks in but probably under 1000kWh in a month.

The size of your house and what you use for heating and cooking will effect your baseline. If you have an all electric house you will have a higher baseline.

The Tiers rates from my most recent bill.
Tier 1 Baseline..................................... 13 cents KWH
Tier 2 up to 30 percent over baseline ......15 cents KWH
Tier 3 31-100 percent over baseline........ 23 cents KWH
Tier 4................................................. .27 cents KWH
Tier 5................................................. .30 cents KWH

We are a family of 5 and would like a home of around 3,000 s.f. If I can stay in the first two tiers and average 14 cents , I wonder how the taxes would affect the bill. My brother pays 4.5 cents in Colorado , but the after tax price comes to 11 cents . I have a friend in Riverside and her bill comes to 24 cents per kwh after tax.

No wonder solar panels are so popular with the higher tiers already 27 and 30 cents before tax .

Those are average rates including tax, my bill shows the base Tier 1 rate before tax 4.5 cents. 2000kWh sounds high for the IE outside of the hot months (July-Oct.) Looks like San Bernardino baselines are:

Summer - 16.1kWh/day Winter - 10.6kWh/day
All Electric - 17.4kWh/day Winter - 24.1kWh/day
