Can you calculate an electric bill?

Uncategorized / May 29, 2019

Below we have a simple electric bill and electric tariff. As we’ve illustrated elsewhere the utility industry is a complex one. Determining your bill is not as simple as taking your Kilowatt hour rate and multiplying it by your usage.

Take the below example and see if you can come up with the correct answer. We’ve hidden the answer in a link at the bottom of this post. Challenge yourself, no peeking :).  Good luck, we’ve yet to have anyone get this correct.  

You will need this tariff and the invoice below to do the math (old invoice amounts and client name have been whited out).
