We have solar and our bill for 2 months has been between 80-100 pesos, but for the last 2 bills, it has been over 200 pesos and we have not done anything different to use more electricity.  Have the rates gone up?

As I mentioned on the other board. I had the same issue, and I assume it is because it seemed to be more cloudy than normal the last several months and therefore the panels generated less electricity.

I have studied the bill and it is so convoluted, I just can't understand it. I was charged a separate basico rate and a separate intermedio rate for 375 kWh over 2 months. But the 2 rate charges don't add up to the 224 pesos bill.

Anybody else confused with their bill?

See my response on the other board for how to read your bill.

So was mine. It is the minimum charge for actually receiving a bill. We obviously have enough efficient solar panels to cover our butts on cloudy days.

I've just had a bill for $335 MXN which includes the Christmas holiday season of excessive lighting.  I track my consumption on a spreadsheet which extrapolates into the future and automatically calculates the current bill using the current electricity rates.  The rates have not changed in a couple of years.
