Summer Base Usage Quantities per month 10.16? per kWh Base-Plus Quantities per month 18.30? per kWh
Harder to pinpoint the baseline limits, but base can be as low as 620 and as high as 1100 depending on time of year and some other factors.
Of course if you conserved you wouldn't need so much expensive electricity and at 34 cents/kwh the payback would be pretty nice and quick. but do enjoy your extensive lifestyle

Actual costs are more appropriately charged to the user, i.e. *fair*.

You think just MAYBE the fact that TX uses more electricity per capita is due to factors like they actually have industries that use more electricity? Industries that actually build products, using energy? For example, when is the last time Intel built a fab in CA? Answer, a very long time ago. How many fabs do they have operating in CA? Answer: none I do know of one new fab built there: Solyndra. $700mil and it was obsolete before it opened. Shows you that the smart businessmen know not to locate in CA, while the shysters taking govt money are either totally stupid or just don't care because it's doomed to fail anyway.
Also I would suspect that states that have their population more widely distributed across the stat

So you think that CA only has beaches and farms?
California is the nation's leading industrial state, ranking 1st in almost every general manufacturing category: number of establishments, number of employees, total payroll, value added by manufacture, value of shipments, and new capital spending. Specifically, California ranks among the leaders in machinery, fabricated metals, agricultural products, food processing, computers, aerospace technology, and many other industries. With its shipyards, foundries, flour mills, and workshops, San Francisco was the state's first manufacturing center. The number of manufacturing establishments in California nearly doubled between 1899 and 1914, and the value of manufactures increased almost tenfold from 1990 to 1925. New factories for transportation equipment, primary metal products, chemicals and food products sprang up in the state during and after World War II. Second to New York State in industrial output for many years, California finally surpassed that state in most manufacturing categories in the 1972 Census of Manufacturers. California's industrial workforce is mainly located in the two major manufacturing centers: almost three-fourths work in either the Los AngelesLong BeachOrange County area or the San FranciscoOaklandSan Jose area. Although the state workforce has a wide diversity of talents and products, the majority produces food, electronic and other electrical equipment, transportation equipment, apparel, and fabricated and industrial machinery. Computers and aerospace manufacturers stand out among California's largest publicly owned corporations. Hewlett-Packard, Sun Microsystems, Tandem Computers, Varian Associates, and Silicon Graphics are leading names of the Silicon Valley (Santa Clara County) area just south of San Francisco. Southern California's manufacturing leaders are Rockwell International, Lockheed, Northrop, and Computers Sciences. Leading manufacturers on the list of California private companies are Levi Strauss, Del Monte, Sunkist Growers, and Ernest and Julio Gallo Winery, showing the continuing strength that the Golden State has historically maintained in apparel and food production and processing. Apparel manufacturers employed over 144,000 people in 1999. Over $50 billion of food products is shipped annually. The aerospace industry in California accounts for $28 billion in sales annually, employs about 117,000, and takes up a 20% share of the nation's total aerospace employment. In 1999, California's motion picture industry, based primarily in Los Angeles, had receipts of at least $28 billion. In 1999, the film and TV production industry generated an annual payroll of $13.4 billion and pays $14.6 billion to suppliers while providing jobs to 475,000 Californians. The tourism industry in California brings in over $60 billion in sales annually, and provides jobs for nearly 700,000 Californians. Earnings of persons employed in California increased from $627 billion in 1997 to $677 billion in 1998, an increase of 7.9%. The largest industries in 1998 were services, 32.4% of earnings; state and local government, 11.4%; and durable goods manufacturing, 11.1%. Of the industries that accounted for at least 5% of earnings in 1998, the slowest growing from 1997 to 1998 was state and local government, which increased 5.5%; the fastest was durable goods manufacturing, which increased 10.9%.

When was the last time an ag processing facility was built in Texas?

I think adrenaline is good for people.
Just wait 'til you see the post I'm currently working on. While I haven't finished it yet, I can tell you that it provides a formula for concocting a blood substitute from fresh turnips.
I'll eagerly await your review.
