    Just wondering, when people throw numbers out like $.09, $.12 per kwh, are they taking into account the other fees as well?

    There is still the flat "generation rate" per kwh that gets added to that, as well as transmission charge as well. Its come out to about $.25-.$28 kwh with TOU-5 and you still gotta pay the flat $16 monthly fee.

    Granted still not as expensive as 91 octane gas for my turbo car, but wow!

    For EV-TOU-5, the rates are $0.53, $0.29, and $.093 (summer on-peak, off-peak, super off-peak, respectively). That includes transmission, generation, and everything else, except for the $16/month flat fee.

    Here's the most up-to-rate rate for EV-TOU-5: https://www.sdge.com/sites/default/files/regulatory/6-1-19%20Schedule%20EV-TOU-5%20Total%20Rates%20Table.pdf

    And here is a useful link to the total electric rates for every SDG&E rate schedule: Total Electric Rates | San Diego Gas & Electric

    I'll also add that my EV-TOU-5 bill is only a few hundred dollars per year (not including the EV credit SDG&E gave me this year, which will make my true up bill negative). That includes a 3kW solar array installed in 2012 that's paid for itself already, and one electric car which I use for virtually all my driving. I don't commute very far, but if it did, it's only a few cents/mile in marginal fuel costs. A gasoline car would cost me at least four times as much in marginal fuel costs, at today's gas rates.
