lets change up the direction of the complaint department. Something just recently found its way under my skin and I really would like to open the book of profanity every time I think about it. We are all told to conserve, conserve, conserve. Well, my wife and I are all about saving money, so we cut the amount of electricity we use in half and since we get charged for peak and off peak usage, we moved all of our heavy use which is now considerably smaller to our off peak use time 11:30 p.m -7:00 a.m. We received our electric bill today and it nearly tripled in cost over last month. Oh, did I mention that I read the meter to the electric company and the total kilowatt use I phoned in is a lot lower than the kilowatts I was charged for. It is not like I talked to a computer, I talked to a very nice young man who happen to mention when looking at my usage that I cut 33% of my total electric use over my previous month. Imagine my surprise when I get a really nice large bill. My wife and I are on the verge of calling the electric company to have them turn off the power and remove their jar from our house. Next month we might turn off the power and test to see if we use our generator twice per day, what our monthly cost would be. If we can make the change with little disruption to our lives and my business, we will disconnect from the grid. I know we live in an era where big companies are constantly screwing joe public, however, when it happens directly to yourself, it really hits home. I remember growing up hearing about someone getting the poor end of the stick or getting the shaft, however, it was once in a blue moon this happened to someone. Today this is the norm and it shouldn't be. I burn coal because I don't like to pay high prices of oil from other countries and I like burning a hand fed coal stove. I would rather pay a miner in PA than a foreign country. This lack of morals and price gouging has got to stop somewhere but where? I wish I could generate power from burning coal.
