Re: “Do utility 'connect fees' unfairly punish smaller users?

I like your name "Local Beer 4 All".
Creating our basic needs on a local level including our Beer is always a good idea.

Now back to the issue of charging a monthly maintenance fee. We are not talking a few extra dollars for this fee. Charging customers close to $30.00 a month, close to $400.00 a year just to stay connected is excessive or so it seems and this "Fee" obviously keeps getting bigger.
To really break this issue down to the nuts and bolts of what is necessary to keep the grid maintained we need to right here in a public forum look at the real costs involved and how much would the true cost add to our kilowatt hour charge on our bill each month.

We can add the cost to our kilowatt hours to keep the cost fair for everyone.
Those who want to conserve will save money and those who use more power will pay for their usage.

So "Beer 4 All" how much is the true maintenance cost and how much would this add to our kilowatt hour cost?

Its just simple math - lets talk about this.
Do some research on the subject and get back to us.
