Why Electricity Rates Vary By Zip Code
Electricity rates vary across the United States based on zip code and different electricity providers. Zip codes can identify which utility or electricity provider services your area and the cost of that electricity. Depending on the state, utility and electricity provider, you could pay anywhere from a few cents to over $1 per kWh of electricity.
Generally, electricity rate plans tend to be more expensive in larger metropolitan areas such as New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Dallas. Large cities tend to pay more for electricity due to a larger demand for energy and increased regulatory costs as well as higher taxes and fees.
Rural areas tend to have the most competitive electricity rates due to the abundance of natural resources (e.g. coal, natural gas) and less regulation over how those resources can be used. Rural communities may also be able to take advantage of lower wholesale rates due to lower demand.
Electricity rates in certain zip codes can also differ depending on the time of day. Although most Americans generally pay the same rate throughout the day, some areas have time of use (TOU) rates where the utility charges different electricity rates depending on the time of day. For example, at peak times like evenings and weekends, the rate you pay for electricity can be much higher than at off-peak times.
