So Paul you have a condo that you only use part of the time and pay a
smaller amount of the fixed costs then the guy in the condo next door. Why?
Isn't the costs of serving you the same as the costs to serve him?

Yeah and Austin Energy density is much higher than PEC. How do you
account for that Paul?

Dear Al: Same with the Austin Energy. I have a condo in Austin but I am
not there often. The rate for those who use 500KWH or less is 8.4 cents
per KWH. Austin Energy helps with conservation. But, what do they know?
PEC charges $73.40 for that 500 KWH and that averages at 14.68 cents per
KWH. Compare 8.4 cents to 14.68 cents.
Austin Energy charges only $6.00 fee for the meter. All the info is on
the bill for the customer to see. PEC is fast changing from a rural co-op to
an urban co-op. Old habits have to change.
Sincerely, Paul Langston

I reviewed the rate structure of the City of Austin water utility: it is
an inverted rate structure, and the big residential user, the water hogs,
pay about 7 times more per gallon than the most conservative user of water,
users who use 2000 gallons or less per month. This type of rate structure
rewards conservation with cheaper rates and it penalizes the heavy user
with higher costs. Al
