Thread Name: What do you pay for electricity?
Subject: RE: What do you pay for electricity?
Up here in Everett, the Seattle area, our rate just jumped from .054 per KWH to .071. We are warned that another rate jump is expected. Plus, the local cities and counties add on their hidden taxes to our P.U.D. bill. That's the kind of actions that is causing a tax payer revolt up here, through our state initive process. When the California power debacle happens, the FEDS ordered Washington and Oregon to sell power to California, and caused our rates to jump. We heat our small house with two woodstoves, our bill WAS $108 per month average ... that's 'gonna change real soon. And the biggest frustration we feel is the we CAN'T GET AT THE BUMS WHO CAUSED THIS!
