i am curious to know about how to use this word. like should i go for electricity charges are high or electricity rates are high? Thanks.
In USA we would probably refer to the total monthly charges as "the/my electric bill" or "the/my power bill.– Brian HitchcockJun 3, 2015 at 7:48
Which you use depends on what you mean. The "rates" are the prices per unit: so much per kilowatt-hour; the "charges" are the amounts actually charged, calculated as the amount used times the rate. So you could have high charges with low rates if you use a lot of electricity, or low charges with high rates if you use very little electricity. Or they could both be low, or both be high.
2However, I would tend to keep my distance from someone who is "electrically charged". Jun 3, 2015 at 2:16
