The only tax on my Duke bill is a 3% state sales tax.
Which gets us nowhere near 11 cents/kWh.
So both the simple payback & IRR calculations are even worse than everyone's already calculated.
All of which also ignore maintenance & repair costs - IIRC, somebody's going to have to get up on the roof to swap out a failed micro-inverter.

From the best I can figure, Duke Energy in North Carolina charges
For the first 350 kWh used per month: 9.2899ï¿½ per kWh (excluding taxes which probably kicks it up to around 11ï¿½ per kWh)
I don't need charts, graphs estimates. I go by what's on my bill.
8/14 to 9/13 880 kWh, cost including all taxes and fees $101.53. Cost per kWh $0.115. That's the bottom line. Two figures, kWh used and total cost.
