Baja Electrical Rates

bajadock: friend just sent me an article about false cost of living assumptions made by expat candidates.  Most Baja expats are surprised by higher electrical rates vs USA.  The tiered rate system in Baja pushes high gringos quickly into highest tier.

La Paz, Baja California Sur (BCS). With the exception of the states of Baja California, that is, Baja California Sur and the neighboring state to the north, the rest of the country will have a percentage reduction in their electric bills from this month ; 31% lower in October industrial and residential electricity rate 8.0%

The decline being registered in most of the country, but those who benefit most are those of the north and northeast areas, where much of the production plant is concentrated, publishes a national average, discarding these benefits to Baja California and BCS.

Electricity rates for the most power-intensive industries use 31% fall compared with the same month of 2014. This schedule for the fare basis, when there is less demand, because the charge nationwide fell 0.97 pesos per kilowatt (kW) in 2014 to 0.67 pesos per kW for the month, except inBCS .

In the case of peak hours when more electricity is used, the charge decreased by 16% compared to October 2014, going from 1.71 to 1.44 pesos per kW. And in the case of residential tariffs, high domestic consumption (DAC) fell 8% to seasonally adjusted figures.
