There is a lot of misconceptions on electricity pricing. Fuel cost to supply the generators goes up by quite a bit in the winter months from 0.022 in June 2009 to a high of .0464, representing a doubling in fuel cost to make the electricity. We do not see this because our usage in kWh drops in the winter compared to peak AC times of June, July and August. Those on fixed rates do not get a true sense of market cost and the final rates equalized over the periods to take account for seasonal price fluctuations (Insulation or insurance).
