    Are you selling back to the grid? Do you have extra? How many kW system do you have?

    Generation costs, reportedly, are much higher. California has a lot of surplus capacity. It is easy to build new power generation plants (from a regulatory view). Plants are then operated at a lower capacity, but the full construction costs still get ‘baked in’ to the costs.

    I am paying 18c for tier one as well, but hey, I would rather pay a little more for NOT using the gas and no I don't want to see my money goes to OPEC.

    I am really jealous. My rate with PG&E for tier1 400kwh is 20c, tier2 400kwh is 27C. If I choose timed rate, of peak (11pm-7am) is 12C but peak (2-8pm) is 45C which is ridiculous and not work for me due to central valley hot weather during summer.

    So I want to change to timed rate but switch back to tiered rate during summer, but that's too much hassle as it takes 1 billing cycle to take effect. PG&E just sucks and is like parasitic.

    That is rough if you cannot put up PV.
    Even so, hang in there. Utility excess capacity is a moving target in California. They will come to you with better offers down the road and in the meantime, worse case you have a very efficient gas car.

    I am looking to install solar panel. Once installed, I won't even care about utility companies, I would avoid them at any cost.
