KWH used OR meter charge for me, not both

In response to 140725: electric bills, posted by Sierra B on Saturday, 11 March 2017, at 5:22 p.m.

Sounds like the "new system" is far inferior to the "old system" I am apparently grandfathered into. In fact, Helco dropped the ball in those old net metering contracts in at least this one point:

If I generate (or have in my "bank") more kwh/billing period than I consume I pay only the $21.77 minimum charge for a meter hanging on the wall. However, if I use a few more kwh/billing period than I produce or have in my "bank" of roll-over kwh's they charge me for the kwh's I used from them INSTEAD of the minimum meter charge. It should be AS WELL AS, or ON TOP OF the minimum meter charge!

I've had many months where my bill was in the $7 or $11 range. I'm glad I got in early and sized my panels just right for my usage pattern.
