If the power goes out do I still pay?
Yes you will if the power goes out the electric company consider this as acts of God and are expected in the operation on a utility Company therefore your bill will be less but you will have one
Sort of - you still have to pay your electric bill, but it will probably be a lot lower since (if the power isn't actually working) you'll be using less electricity.
Your bill is a base fee plus amperage usage.... Even if you use far less, there will always be a a bill to pay.
