If you want just the actual kwh price, I don't know. There are so many add ons. But I take my bill and divide by the kwh used and come up with anywhere from .30-.34 per kwh. I get 17 WAPA bills. They are never all the same.

The funny thing is it appears the more you use, the lower your kwh rate. Isn't that just WRONG! I understand it used to be that way everywhere, but these are different times.

My last bill showed a rate of .028512 per kwh. I live at a condo, so don't know if the kwh rate is different than for a regular residential customer.

Mine have been about .29 cents a kilowatt and for my clients its been about the same. Its a nice change of pace from the 25k Wapa bills I was paying this summer for work. Hope it stays down.

I think I am paying CURRENTLY about 0.30 cents per KWH. At peak oil prices this summer I think we were paying about 0.45 cents!!

Mine is .30329(30-1/3) KWH
If you use the formula Juanita did by KWH used divided from amount of charge.
Just what IS a PILOT SUR/WHB SUR??? Ah, I`m envious, wish I could make up stuff like that for my customers(but I`m not a thief, so I don`t).
I too would welcome another (well deserved) WAPA rate decrease!
But, the damage is already done from high oil prices!
The food prices that shot up just before the 1st WAPA decrease,are still with us despite the 40% decrease that resulted from the 70% decrease in oil prices.
Also, the fuel surcharge the ferries charge is still with us,the closed businesses.
I`m sure many more others as well.
WAPA said 95% of the WAPA bill is the cost of oil?
What gives?
Fuel hedging?
If so,why so high on the up, & so low on the down?

Pilot surcharge? Did WAPA place an emergency barge order with HOVENSA? Wouldn't surprise me to find they run that power plant with low or no reserves given their liquidity issues.
