I saw a similar post on this topic but it didn’t quite address my question – so here goes:
I just moved to Park Slope from MN last month and received our first ConEd bill. We live in a smaller 1BR studio and my jaw hit the floor when I opened up and read the bill was for $129.13. OUCH. $32 was from our last bill which is fine. But $100 for one month of electricity seems a bit ridiculos to me. We’re very conscientious of turning lights off and things like that. Before calling them to ask about it I’d like to get some input from people on the user end who may have experienced the same issue/concern.
Here’s the breakdown of the bill for this month:
Previous month’s charges = $31.72.
Supply charges = $39.13. That’s fine… I understand that part. Now onto the good stuff:
Delivery Charges = $50.91 (Basic service charge: $14.65 + Delivery 356 kWh @8.88624Â¢/kWh $31.55)
Can someone explain in plain English what the delivery charge is all about – am I going to be paying this extra $45 every month? Does that seem wrong or is this one of those many “Welcome to NY!” surprises?
