From what I've heard it's mostly people with swimming pools that are in the DAC rate. And given what I've seen some people quote as their bi-monthly payment, David do you have a pool? And even at the bi-monthly cost some people with pools are quoted it's still about what I was paying for my house in NJ without swimming poll and gone all day because I was working.

But when you retire costs are important and people with a pool definitely get a pay back for their investment. I am looking into solar hot water as soon as the rains stop. For electric the costs have already come down and my bill is not very high so I'll wait and hope costs come down more.

It's not about pool pumps. Our pool and some other things are on a separate meter. The house alone has always been in the DAC rate. If you use over 3000kWhrs per 12 month period (500 kWhrs per bill) you'll be in the DAC rate. NOB we used 1,000 kWhrs per month, here we use 350 but the bill is much higher here.
