Importing Electricity does not Raise Rates

I have compared residential rates for my region (IL, IA, IN, KY, MI, MN, MO, OH, WV, WI) and find no real effect of percentage power imported on these rates. WV is a huge exporter and has low rates. For the rest, rates do not matter on whether the state is an importer or exporter.
