    If you use a Smart Meter they can be getting you on Surge/ Time of Day pricing.
    Also look at the tiers- the generally start really raising prices for each tier it goes up.

    Those two things is why the Tesla Power Wall/ Battery Storage is becoming interesting.  Use cheap power at night to charge the battery and drain it during peak time.

    Also it appears you live in a 'deregulated' area which means you could go shopping for a provider.  Many providers will give ridiculous deals for some time frame.

    BTW- I have been tracking my kWh use for ~3 years, my max all in has never been as high as .14/ kWh.  In the winter after upgrading all lighting to LED and burning Nat Gas for heat I can get this large house under 500 kWh.  In Maine there is a program to go to specific sellers and get the rebate at the register for LED Lighting (Mid Stream Program) so usually you can get them up front for very inexpensive.
    i think im as low as one can go, only the fridge runs during the day, add a fan tv and one or two lights at night, burn coal for heat in a stove, kwh runs maybe 160 to 250 per season. i actually rate number 1 for usage compared to the efficient neighbors around me most months. im just ranting because it took me a year to get my propane bill down from 3.65 a gallon to 2.20 and now this goes up. 30 cents a kilowatt hour seems ridiculous, this aint alaska or hawaii
