CFE/DAC Empty CFE/DAC

I have forgotten the level of electric consumption each billing cycle that will send our account into the DAC rate. And will that rate apply after only two consecutive high consumption cycles?
Thanks!

The look back is 12 months or 6 bi-monthly bills.  When the total KWH's for that period exceeds 3,000, you get the DAC rate.  

Because the lookback is a rolling 12 months (6 billing cycles for most of us), it's possible to bounce back and forth.  

At our first home here we bought a very inefficient wine cooler and also decided (unwisely) to run our large waterfall fountain all day long.  We went into DAC just barely for one billing cycle.  We immediately put the fountain pump on a timer and unplugged the wine cooler.  The very next bill we were out of DAC.  

What I wrote is what I understood it to be back then; we installed solar at our current home and no longer worry about going into DAC, so it could be my info is out of date.

Yes what Plan B said is true; I was referring to local Chapala rules.  

Friends who used to live in Mazatlán had a different billing structure; they got a good break on summer rates since running a/c is pretty much the default there (and at many beach areas across the country).

It isn't just because of AC- plenty of people on the coast don't have AC, including me and most of the local Mexicans. They don't give summer rates to help out gringoes with AC :-) It's that even if you don't have AC, you are running fans 24/7, the fridge runs more to stay cold in the summer- there's just more electricity needed in the summer on the coast in general, regardless of AC.
