That is far from the market in general.
Most people use a fixed rate plan (can easily find one without rebate
for <10c/kwh after taxes & fees). The customer would have to make an
explicit decision to pick a variable/market rate plan (excluded by
default on http://powertochoose.org/) with higher risk and cheaper
electricity when the wholesale price is low.
