Your bill is broken down into 3 major parts.

1-Usage-The amount of energy you actually use
2-Delivery-This is how utility companies make their money since they aren't allowed to profit on the usage side.
3-Miscellaneous fees, taxes, etc. Basically another way for the utility to profit.

I've never heard of electric billing as you describe it.
There's really no way you wouldn't see savings by going to an electric car. Especially when you factor in oil changes and other maintenance that a gasoline engine requires.

Even forgetting the service charges of a gas engine, the $/miles driven is far higher with gasoline than with electricity.
