That is what I thought. Nobody in the USA pays $0.05 for electricity. The bills are intentionally misleading. The only way to know what you are really paying is for you to do the math. Base fees, transmission fees, and taxes can become 2/3 of the bill. Take the actual payment amount at the end of the bill and divide it by the kWh that you used.
