I am confused, are some consumers actually paying $90.00 per kw/h?

That would be $9.00 per kWh, not "$90.00 per kw/h" which is both the wrong amount and the wrong way to write the unit.

And yes, some cosumers may have chosen to be billed at spot prices like this, though probably not very many, and of course since it's spot pricing they were charged it back then, not now when you're writing this and the wholesale price is more normal.

The Griddy rate was pegged at $8.99/kwh for about an hour and 15 minutes.
