Fixed monthly power bill innovation

Fixed power bill innovation

In large numbers, to illustrate the proposed concept of a fixed monthly bill, that would be the "bulk" of the monthly power bill.

  • Investment in generation, transmission and distribution: USD 3 thousand/kW
  • Interest rate of 1% per month 
  • Amortization term of 240 months (20 years) 
  • Result: USD 33/kW/month 

Example of a house...

Demanding 5 kW would pay a bill of USD 165/month

Example of an industrial plant...

Demanding 1,000 kW would pay a bill of USD 33 thousand

Plain and simple!
